THE NUTCRACKER 2023
Congratulations to all involved in such a magical season of Nutcracker performances at the Concourse Theatre last weekend!
There was great delight, appreciation and applause expressed by the packed auditorium for the outstanding performances!
Thank you to each and every artist who performed so beautifully and brought such joy to the audience. We are so so proud of you all!
It was very special to have beautiful Tchaikovsky music played live for the first time for the full TPA Nutcracker, performed by the sensational SYO Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Stephen Williams. We are so thankful for this unique and successful partnership of the SYO Philharmonic Orchestra with TPA.
It was incredible to have such stunning special guest artists of The Australian Ballet – Annabelle Watt and Bryce Latham, and accomplished TPA graduates Janae Kerr and Alexander Smith, who performed the roles of Sugarplum and Prince! A special thanks to all of our guest artists for their sensational performances which were also very inspiring for our young artists.
Special thanks go to guest artist Michael Braun for his wonderful performance as Nutcracker Prince and for his amazing expertise and support partnering the Clara of each cast.
Thank you to our young guest artist Charlie Carberry or his fantastic performance as Snow King.
Thank you to all our adult performers as well as our terrific featured artists- Drosselmeyer performed by Robert Bruist, Mother performed by Liz Perez and Father performed by Elliot Bourke.
We are incredibly grateful to all the incredible people who put this production together. Thank you to the whole team who staged the show. So many teachers, staff and volunteers contributed in putting this production together from staging, making costumes, organisation, backstage crew and choreographing the new scenes. You all did a fabulous job and the show looked incredible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Thank you Tony McCoy for your amazing support and help in constructing and setting up the stage sets.
Thank you to Kim Peade for your wonderful expertise in making our productions so beautifully lighted. You have been such an incredible support for our productions over the last 11 years!! We can’t thank you enough.
