Principal Mary Grace Lynch pledged the “sweetest Nutcracker you’ll ever see.”

First and second graders at St. James Elementary School then delivered with their performance of the Tchaikovsky ballet on Monday morning.

The Nutcracker cast even included Lynch as Mother Ginger.

Music educator Christa Braunreuther conceived of staging the performance at St. James Elementary more than a decade ago and pitched it to Lynch. Monday’s performance marked the 13th anniversary of the original one — all involving first and second graders.
