Check out the Wood Theater’s shows!
If you are looking for ways to relax and de-stress this holiday season, the Charles R. Wood Theater has some very entertaining family-oriented productions.
One of these events will be the Adirondack Ballet Theater’s 22nd annual presentation of Tchaikovsky’s timeless holiday classic, “The Nutcracker” in three shows — at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday Dec. 14 and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday Dec. 15.
The Adirondack Ballet Theater was the first dance company to perform at The Wood Theater, and they are proud to be the venue’s resident dance company.
This year’s performance will celebrate ten years of the two entities working together with the Charles Wood Theater. This acclaimed dance company will present this holiday favorite — typically sold-out — with student dancers ranging in age from 5 to 18, plus guest artists and alumni.
Tickets are on sale Dec. 14 through Dec. 15 at 2:30 p.m. for $16 at the Wood Theater, 204 Glen St. in Glens Falls.
