And the 2014 National Nutcracker Award Nominees Are …
The Goldstar National Nutcracker Award competition has begun. More than 70 nominees across the country are competing for the “Nutty” (a statuette), which is awarded to the winning Nutcracker along with a cash prize for the company’s education programs and the honor of being able to boast, “the best loved Nutcracker in the U.S.” This is the only award honoring live performances of the holiday classic.
How does a production win the Nutty? Goldstar members rate the Nutcracker-themed productions they attend in 2014. The Nutcracker with the highest user rating will be named the winner.
Not only do we have Nutcrackers from 15 states including Washington D.C., but there’s a wide variety of them, too, from traditional ballet to burlesque to puppets to a full symphony orchestra to a production that’s set in ’40s Los Angeles.
