History of the Stapleton Nutcracker: Virginia Stapleton created her first Nutcracker way back in 1989, when she first opened her school. Virginia refers to it as a "primitive version" of the ballet; and it was presented in the Drake High School Little Theatre. Much like the Stapleton School, the annual production of The Nutcracker has grown incredibly! From Drake's Little Theatre the production moved to the College of Marin, where it was performed for two years. Back then, Virginia collaborated with David McNaughton to create her own version of the classic ballet. Her son R-T helped build sets, and her best friend Karen Barar sewed costumes. In 1997 and 1998, the show was presented at Angelico Hall, on the campus of Dominican University. In 1999, Virginia took the leap to the "big time", moving the annual production to the Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium. In 2000, she reworked all the original choreography, putting her own version together, and it has evolved with input from collaborators such as faculty member Shelley Scott. The show is wholly Virginia Stapleton's artistic vision: from the sets, to the costumes, to the props; Virginia has her eye on every last detail.

The Stapleton Ballet's Nutcracker distinguishes itself from many others in the Bay Area in several ways. First and foremost, it is an inclusive production. Any Stapleton dance student, age 6 or older, that wishes to perform, is cast in a role. This insures that all students may have the incredible experience of being part of a professional production. Through their participation, these students learn dedication, commitment, discipline and teamwork. Parents of performers serve on committees that support the production: they do jobs as varied as fitting and altering costumes to applying makeup and dressing and working backstage as stagehands. It is a true community effort. In addition, Virginia prides herself on creating a vibrant production, a Nutcracker that is exciting and engaging for children and adults of all ages.
