(LAKEWOOD, NJ) -- The Atlantic City Ballet brought their production of The Nutcracker to The Strand in Lakewood on Sunday, December 18th. It was their final production of the holiday classic for the year following a run of performances at Stockton and their home at Caesars in Atlantic City.  Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

This is the 40th year the Atlantic City Ballet has presented its production of The Nutcracker. This beloved ballet tells the story of a little girl named Clara who is given a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. Embarking on a wondrous journey through the Kingdom of Snow and the Land of Sweets, Clara encounters many unforgettable and timeless characters. Young and old alike will experience the magic of this marvelous Christmas tale that will create a lifetime of memories.

Choreographed by Phyllis Papa, the production travels to theaters, colleges and casinos. The costumes and scenery are magnificent. It is a spectacular and beautiful ballet as these photos show.
