Connecticut Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker at Stamford Center for the Arts is set to take the stage with several young dancers from Greenwich in the cast. The acclaimed production returns Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 14, 15, 21 and 22 in downtown Stamford. All four performances are 2 p.m. matinees.

The annual staging includes 100 local children chosen by audition in addition to the professional dancers and international guest stars.

Brett Raphael’s acclaimed production features guest stars Julie Kent, Veronika Part, Alexandre Hammoudi, and Jared Matthews, all members of American Ballet Theatre.

Called a ‘feast for the eyes,’ the staging includes a spectacular Christmas tree, magical falling snow, sumptuous costumes and gorgeous dancing by Connecticut Ballet’s corps de ballet.
