“If you are an educator fairytales are always parts of the curriculum. As a teacher back then, I was always able to do a lot of comparing and contrasting the original Nutcracker, and many times it did not look like me,” says the creator Mrs. Page.
As a teacher Bev Page for most of her career worked in schools in underserved populations, and there were always very few images of us. When they went to any performance or on any stage there were always few that looked like us.
Beverly Page has 25 years of teaching in the public school system.The driving force for Beverly Page in the 10 years she has produced the performance/show, first at the Bob Carr Center, and now at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is access and opportunity.
The secret sauce to make this performance work for 10 years is bringing the cultures together. Clare and Chocolate Nutcracker is a multi-cultural performance and everyone who comes to the show, they can see the brilliance and love in every scene. It is a reflection of your own family, and the beauty of America.
Beverly Page is directing and producing the show this year. There is something here for everyone, and the children and youth have tirelessly worked and trained from August to November.“This gives me joy to see the opportunities afforded members of our cast. We have come full circle, and I am very proud of it,” says Beverly Page.
