“Southeastern Trust Company’s investment in our organization and this production is a wonderful example of a business giving back to the community it serves,” said John Farrimond, executive director. “Their support creates a higher caliber production and underwrites our community-based programs as well. They are an organization worthy of emulation.”

More than 150 local youth will join Chattanooga Ballet’s five professional company members and guest artists in this year’s production. The lead role of Clara will be shared by Chattanooga Ballet students Kathryn Grace Kyle and Layla Reed. Former company member Dillion Davis will return to play the mysterious Herr Drosselmeyer. New costumes and stage scenery will also be a part of the return to the theatre after last year’s filmed show.

“What would the holidays be without the beauty and spirit of The Nutcracker ballet,” Southeastern Trust’s CEO, Bart Rolen noted. “Our commitment to excellence extends beyond our clients to the community at-large. Chattanooga Ballet’s dedication to serve through the power of dance includes performance, education, and community impact. We are proud to support their efforts.”
