Kansas City Ballet Guild – Nutcracker Luncheon

On December 13th, the Kansas City Ballet Guild gathered for the delightful Nutcracker Luncheon at the Muehlebach Tower of the Kansas City Marriott Downtown. President Susan Meehan-Mizer and members of the archives committee presented a dazzling array of photos and costumes from past productions of The Nutcracker. The festive tables were decorated with traditional nutcrackers, all of which were sold by the end of the luncheon.
