Girl Scout Holiday Package


Are you a member of the Girl Scouts? Do you know a Scout Leader?  We are pleased to invite Girl Scout Troops to our performance of The Nutcracker.  Through the years, CVDA has enjoyed having troops at the performances and introducing them to the world of dance.  We would be pleased to share this Holiday tradition of The Nutcracker again with any Troops interested. If you are interested, we would like to offer you group tickets at a discounted price of $12.00 per scout (regularly $14.00) for children under 12.  Included with your tickets will be a Q&A with Clara and the Sugar Plum Fairy immediately following your performance.
