Nutcracker 2014


The Nutcracker, a classical ballet in two acts, is based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffman. It follows the enchanting journey of young Marie who receives a nutcracker as a gift at a Christmas Eve party. She encounters the frightful Mouse King before embarking on a wondrous journey with her handsome prince through the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets.

Dancing the feature roles are Karina Davis, Clinton, NY as Marie, Trevor Jones, Utica, NY as the Nutcracker Prince, and Adriana Perretta, Yorkville, NY as the Sugar Plum Fairy. Clinton Central School District Superintendent Dr. Stephen Grimm and his wife, Miquel, as well as Elementary School Principle Steve Marcus and his wife, Rosie, will be making special guest appearances in the first act. In addition, this unique collaboration features more than one hundred dancers and volunteers from both dance studios and the local community.

The Center Stage Dance Studio and KAC performance of The Nutcracker is a family-friendly, economical way to enjoy the splendor of this holiday tradition. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under. To purchase tickets, please contact the Kirkland Art Center at (315) 853-8871, or Center Stage Dance Studio at (315) 768-1020. Tickets will also be available at the door at the Clinton Performing Arts Complex Box Office, Chenango Avenue, Clinton, NY.

Great Volunteer Opportunities at the KAC

We are so very fortunate to have hundreds of volunteers who donate their time each year to ensure that ours is a community Where Art Lives.

KAC volunteers are involved in a hundred different ways: baking for the Coffeehouse concerts, mending costumes for the Nutcracker, painting the walls of gallery, sorting books for the book sale, or assisting in the Next Gen Studio during our classes and summer camps…. We never run out of things to do!

Whether you are an adult with only a few hours to spare or a student looking for an ongoing commitment, we would be happy to find a role for you here at the KAC. You may click here to download a Volunteer Application 2013 and get involved. You’ll meet great people while ensuring that ours is a great community for artists and art lovers alike!

KAC Coffeehouse Fall & Winter 2014/15



Friday • January 9 • 8 PM
Admission: $15 • KAC Members: $12


brother sunNational Touring Artists Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor, and Joe Jencks have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter’s round. The trio’s harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions.  From three major points on the map Boston, New York, and Chicago – Greg, Pat, and Joe have blended themselves into Brother Sun: a unique celebration of the amazing power of singing together. As they will tell you, the music of Brother Sun is not resident in any one of them – but rather it exists in the space between them. Audiences feel this sincerity immediately. Their combined musical skills make for an unforgettable experience – three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, piano, ukulele, and bouzouki.
