RWB's lobby is looking festive and ready for the holidays! Our tree is lit and decorated in a pink and gold theme complete with pink pointe shoes.
Our costume display is a beautiful collection of vintage Nutcracker pieces. If you'd like a closer look and are coming to see Nutcracker, you'll be able to have a peek as this display will be set up in the lobby of the Concert Hall for the run of the shows!
Many thanks to our hardworking staff who made both possible.
