New Cumberland Public Library welcomes the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet for Storytime with the Nutcracker, a program that introduces young children to the world of ballet through familiar stories. Children will be taught pantomime from the classic Nutcracker ballet so they may understand how the story is told onstage through movement and gesture. This family-friendly event takes place in the storytime castle. Registration is not required, but the program is best suited for children over the age of 3.
