Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre’s
“The Nutcracker” has become
a holiday tradition for New

This will be JMBT’s fifth Nut-

Performances start with a mat-
inee performance at 1 p.m. on
Christmas Eve. Other perfor-
mances are on Dec. 26-27 with
1 p.m. matinee and 6 p.m. eve-
ning shows. Choreographed

Visiting with Santa is a group project for the Miranda family: Six-

Molly Gallagher, 3, tells Santa everything on her holiday wish list.

Santa has just about all he can handle with sisters Laura, 3, and Rae Rae, 1, Castagna.

Hadley and Cameron DaSuta, 3 and 5 years old, smile for a picture
