Tickets go on sale Oct. 11 for the Sugar Plum Tea, the kickoff to “The Nutcracker Ballet.”


As a kickoff to the annual holiday production of “The Nutcracker Ballet” Kingwood Dance Theatre will host its 11th annual Sugar Plum Tea. This magical afternoon for parents and children will be held Sunday, Nov. 9, at the Nathaniel Center, 804 Russell Palmer Road in Kingwood, from 2:30-5 p.m.

The tea will feature finger foods with a variety of desserts, a mini-preview performance of “The Nutcracker Ballet” 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 made 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 lovely packages geared toward both children and adults will be raffled and auctioned at the tea.

Kingwood Dance Theatre is a classical pre-professional ballet company (in residence at Rowland School of Ballet) under the direction of Sheryl Rowland. The nonprofit organization brings professional-level productions to the Humble/Kingwood and Greater Houston areas. Kingwood Dance Theatre will present its 28th annual full-length production of “The Nutcracker Ballet” Dec. 6 and 7 at the Atascocita High School Theater.

Tickets to the Sugar Plum Tea are $25 (lap children under 2 are free) and are available for purchase at Rowland School of Ballet, 1320 Kingwood Drive. Reserved tables of eight may be purchased for $300. Seating is limited. Raffle tickets, as well as tickets to “The Nutcracker Ballet,” will be sold at the event.

Sugar Plum Tea tickets go on sale Saturday, Oct. 11, at 9 a.m. at the Rowland School of Ballet, 1320 Kingwood Drive. For more information, call 281-358-4616.
