This year marks the fifth production of Graham Lustig’s refreshing version of the holiday classic, Lustig’s first production of the piece added some new choreography, clever storytelling plus vivid sets and costumes, “Now, we focus our energies on reconfiguring the work as closely as possible,” he said, One of the things that does change each year is the progression of the young dancers, many of whom have been with the production for several years, “Of our 40 young dancers, about half have been with us before,” Lustig said, “There is a nice progression to their roles as they age and mature as dancers, Most start as a mouse, then a party child, then a snowball and, possibly, a soldier, then a rat and then a bonbon, So each year, they have a new role to learn and women's custom made to order red glitter pointed toe ballet flats. glitter flats. slip on shoes look forward to.”..

Q Your mom was a teacher. Did she ever worry about you getting into a field that is so fickle as acting? Did she want you to have a backup career?. A I don’t remember. I am in the process of writing a lot of personal stories down. So that is something I will ask my mother for this memoir. I know that I caught the (acting) bug from her. When she wasn’t working, she was in community theater, and also ended up going back to school for theater and dance. She was always very encouraging. I don’t remember her ever saying “Maybe you should have a backup plan.” Maybe she saw I was talented enough, and I wouldn’t need one. I knew this is what I was going to be doing for the rest of my life. I got lucky, I suppose.
