PHOTOS: Royal City Youth Ballet’s Nutcracker returns to Massey Theatre stage

The Record gets a backstage look at the Royal City Youth Ballet’s Nutcracker performance

A holiday tradition returned to New West with the Royal City Youth Ballet’s annual Nutcracker production.

After months of hard work and dedication, more than 50 dancers took to the Massey Theatre stage for two shows on Sunday, Dec. 18. Record photographer Jennifer Gauthier was there to catch some of the backstage action.

The cast includes more than 50 dancers from around the Lower Mainland, who range in age from eight to 19, elaborate sets and beautiful costumes. Under the artistic direction of Camilla Fishwick-Kellogg and her team, the dancers have been rehearsing for the full-length performance since early September.

Stay tuned for additional photos.
