The Nutcracker Ballet @ Paramount Theater
Dec 6 @ 7:00 pm
The Nutcracker Ballet @ Paramount Theater

Treat your loved ones to Goldsboro Ballet’s famous Nutcracker at the Paramount Theatre. Praised by audiences as ‘original and exciting,’ this marvelously imagined production, created by Goldsboro Ballet’s Founding Artistic Director Peggy Wingate and further adapted by Assistant Director Mary Franklin, features over 75 dancers, gigantic sets, a snowfall every performance, and – the magical sound of the season – Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. Get dressed to the nines, or come as you are, but reach the very heart of the holidays.

Goldsboro Ballet can proudly lay claim to Wayne County’s first and most recognized and celebrated production of Nutcracker, now in its 34th season. The brilliant result of close collaboration between Goldsboro Ballet founding Artistic Director and choreographer Peggy Wingate and her daughter, Assistant Director Mary Franklin premiered to local acclaim in December 2001. The Directors delved deeply into the original story, infusing the ballet with a drama and strength that fully complements Tchaikovsky’s rich score, while creating a kaleidoscope of roles for all levels of the Company.

Nutcracker is our great repertory ballet. With multiple performances each season, Baby Mice can dream of one day being Party girls and Chinese dancers, Snowflakes, and Flowers and, ultimately, the role of Clara, in which Company women make their debut as ballerina. As students and Company grow up through Nutcracker, so the ballet grows with us, constantly renewing itself and offering challenges and insights about ballet, and life, to the next generation.

Bataan Death March Memorial Hike
Mar 14 all-day

From the order of C/Lt.Col Hunter Strickland the NC-023rd
will be hosting a Bataan Death March Memorial Hike this year at
Cliffs of the Neuse State Park. The Memorial Hike will be on the
14th of March, of 2020. In this Memorial Hike, we will hike 14
miles in remembrance of the fallen.
We would like to invite all to attend the Bataan Death
March Memorial Hike. We will provide refreshments and all cadets
are encouraged to attend.
History Behind The Bataan Death March : The surrendered Filipinos
and Americans soon were rounded up by the Japanese and forced to
march some 65 miles from Mariveles, on the southern end of the
Bataan Peninsula, to San Fernando. The men were divided into
groups of approximately 100, and the march typically took each
group around five days to complete. The exact figures are
unknown, but it is believed that thousands of troops died
because of the brutality of their captors, who starved and beat
the marchers, and bayoneted those too weak to walk. Survivors
were taken by rail from San Fernando to prisoner-of-war camps,
where thousands more died from disease, mistreatment and
starvation.
