Kingwood Dance Theatre announces Sugar Plum Tea
- Written by
As a kickoff to the annual holiday production of “The Nutcracker,” Kingwood Dance Theatre will host its fifth annual Sugar Plum Tea. This magical afternoon for parents and children will be held Sunday, Nov. 16 at the Nathaniel Center, 804 Russell Palmer Road, from 3-5 p.m. The tea will feature finger foods with a variety of desserts, a mini-preview performance of “The Nutcracker,” and complimentary admission to the Sugar Plum Salon where little girls will receive hair, makeup and nail makeovers. Guests will meet “The Nutcracker” cast members in full costume, and for a small donation, may have their picture taken with the Sugar Plum Fairy. Kingwood Dance Theatre’s Nutcracker Boutique will be open for early holiday shopping. As part of this fundraiser, a variety of packages will be raffled at the tea. Highlights of packages to be raffled include a dinner/theatre package, White Christmas and Breakfast with Santa tickets, a new Wii game system, a golf package donated by Kingwood Country Club, a mom’s pampering package, a wine/gourmet food package, a holiday theme basket, several packages to delight little ballerinas and much more. Additionally, several items, including a weekend stay at a Galveston beach house, original art pieces, Rockets tickets, and a hand painted tea table will be auctioned at the tea. Proceeds from the tea and raffle/auction will benefit KDT.
