The Performing Arts Center was transformed into the Land of Sweets this weekend for the 15th annual Nutcracker Gala, held Saturday and Sunday at the Martha's Vineyard Regional High School.

Thirty Island youngsters from the Martha’s Vineyard School of Ballet, under the direction of Beth Vages, shared the stage with 18 professional dancers from the Atlantic Coast Academy of Dance.

Megan Mendez of Vineyard Haven and Alexis Condon of Edgartown, both sixth graders,  played the role of Clara, with Megan dancing during Saturday’s evening performance and Alexis taking the stage for the Sunday matinee.
