The Nutcracker returns!

December 19, 2023

Tchaikovsky would be proud!

An annual tradition at St. James Elementary school continued Tuesday with the first and second graders performance of The Nutcracker and a special guest surprise!

For 15 years music teacher Christa Braunreuther has been rehearsing with students to get them ready for the big show. The tradition starts off the holiday season and lives on throughout the years.

For the second year in a row, Mrs. Braunreuther also had a surprise up her sleeve, asking former St. James Elementary School Principal Mary Grace Lynch to reprise her role as Mother Ginger!
