The Nutcracker captures the magic and fantasy of the classic story. On Christmas Eve, the mysterious Godfather Drosselmeier presents Marie with an unusual Nutcracker. That night she is awakened by a band of renegade mice, led by the evil Mouse King. The Nutcracker, joined by a Ballerina, Feline Legation and Mistress Clara, battle the rodents, and Marie defeats the Mouse King by hitting him with her slipper. The heroes travel to the Land of Toys to rescue Princess Pirlipat from the wicked Mouse Queen, including Sweet Tooth and the cowardly mouse Rudi. The Nutcracker and the princess are reunited, the curse is broken, and Marie returns home with her toys to celebrate Christmas with her family.

Paints with oil, watercolor, and acrylics, but prefers oil and watercolor.
Began painting at age 12, in private lessons. The teacher had an entirely different style so painting was set aside until her later teen years. She did participate during those years in a lot of art projects at school, even winning some awards.
Her favorite artists are Dalhart Windberg, G. Harvey, Mark Pettit, and Ruth Ortiz. She enjoys painting in their styles. She feels that her landscapes are her best, though she does put people in some of her paintings as well as ancient buildings and scenes from Europe; sometimes painting from photos taken while traveling.
Nancy enjoys teaching her Sunday School class where she and Alton are very involved in the activities and
responsibilities of their church. She also enjoys clog dancing, sewing (where she won a ribbon at the State Fair in Dallas), designing (especially quilts) and home décor as well. Her love for the Bastrop Opera House began when the "Bastrop Yesterfest" had the cloggers do their annual clogging show on stage there.
Lives in Manchaca, in a home designed and built by Nancy and Alton, her husband of 56 years.
They have a son and daughter and 7 grandchildren, (3 of these are grandchildren-in-law, but loved as their own).

TISH HINOJOSA EVENING CONCERT
Dec. 21 at 8 p.m.
“A talented songwriter with an understated but utterly unaffected delivery…vivid…touching…pointed…playful…engaging…A
rare gift for melody that’s perfect for Hinojosa’s lovely, relaxed soprano.”
“Her songs are richly detailed slices of life…Hinojosa’s is a strong,
poetic, sensual, and conscious voice.”
“Hinojosa’s music proved infectiously attractive, performed with warmth
and real audience appeal.”
“This tremendously gifted and uncommonly diverse singer-songwriter from
