CELEBRATING OUR 11TH SEASON!
SCBD is delighted to present our favorite Christmas classic, The Nutcracker, December 15th-17th at the New Braunfels Civic Center!
The Youth Company will also be featured in our spring recital, and we will be seeking performance opportunities to be a blessing in the spring at local assisted livings and/or community event(s). (More details will come later in the season :)
We are excited for a wonderful year for our Youth Company and would love for you to be a part of it!
