Our Story

Ever After Productions, Inc. will open its seventeenth annual season with a community production of “Nutcracker Delights”. This enchanting and charming ballet story with original script by local artist Julian Adair is set to the traditional glorious score by Tchaikovsky and told through a wonderful cast of dancers and actors of all ages, uniting to represent professional dancers, Omaha performers and dancers from more than 10 schools across the Omaha Metro Area. The production was nominated for two Theatre Arts Guild Awards in 2009 and an Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards nomination for outstanding dance event in 2019. “We are proud that this community theatre allows aspiring dancers and actors and lifetime theatre hobbyists to come together not only giving back to those on-stage, but providing the community with the chance to come together to celebrate creativity and teamwork,” said Julian Adair, Artistic Director. The story unfolds when Clara’s inquisitive great granddaughter, Marie finds a journal in the attic and asks her grandfather all about her great grandmother’s adventures. E.T.A. Hoffman’s original tale of the King and Queen, their selfish daughter Princess Pearl, an inventive watchmaker named Drosselmeier and his helpful nephew Frederick unfolds. Marie learns how the Rat King’s spell was cast and what must be done to break the dreaded curse. Sword fighting, magic and merriment ensue. The excitement increases with a surprise ending, inspiring to all.
