Nutcracker was a splendid treat for adults and children alike! The run was a great success. We had some special guests attend the performance and a few exciting walk on roles.
RWB welcomed His Honour, The Honourable Philip Lee and Her Honour Mrs. Anita Lee to opening night of the show. Their Honours were greeted by Executive Director, Jeff Herd and Senior Director of Marketing and Development, Judy Slivinski. At intermission Their Honours even met Filbert the Bear!
