Boca Raton – Boca Ballet Theatre celebrates 20 years of Marleen Forkas presenting The Nutcracker! She and her late husband Harold made the initial gift that made it possible for Boca Ballet Theatre to design and build the sets and costumes for this beautiful production. Marleen has continued her support for this production every year since. Created and Choreographed by Co-Artistic Director Dan Guin specifically for the Boca Raton community, The Nutcracker thrills audiences year after year. BRAVO to our Grand Dame Marleen Forkas, we are so grateful for your support which is instrumental in the longevity of Boca Ballet Theatre’s iconic ballet.

We are pleased to announce our guest artists for the 2018 The Nutcracker! From American Ballet Theatre we welcome Katherine Williams as The Sugar Plum Fairy and Jose Sebastian as her Cavalier. Their beautiful Pas de Deux will keep the “magic” alive as they mesmerize the entire audience.

Katherine Williams was born in Honolulu Hawaii where she started her early training. Her family moved to Maryland where she studied at the Ballet Royal Academy and attended summer programs in Boston and at American Ballet Theatre. She joined the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at ABT and remained until she joined the Studio Company then became a member of the corps de ballet. This year she was promoted to Soloist at American Ballet Theatre. We are thrilled to have her performing with us this year!

Jose Sebastian, a native of New York City, returns this year to again capture the role of Cavalier. Jose   attended the School of American Ballet for 10 years and became a member of the corps de ballet in January 2010.  His performance experience includes pieces by Christopher Wheeldon, Benjamin Millepied and George Balanchine. Thank you so much Jose for joining us again this year!
