The Christmas Spectacular 2014

BBPA has decided to take a year off from our annual production of the Nutcracker and offer a fresh & exciting new performance.  We are calling it The Christmas Spectacular and it will be the Bitterroot Valley’s “Radio City Music Hall”, complete with our own Rockettes!  We are VERY excited about this show and know it’s going to be a wonderful production for the whole family to enjoy.

A schedule will be posted as needed, most pieces will be rehearsed during class! There will be rehearsals on Saturdays & Sundays starting in November. We will send out an ALL CALL message to check this site every Wednesday for updates.
