Houston’s Urban Nutcracker delivers a twist on the original holiday production by showcasing Houston’s diverse ethnic culture and theatrical talent. The mission of this production is to provide a cultural experience through artistic expression that builds confidence, inspires hope, transforms lives, and promotes camaraderie among the citizens of Houston. This new holiday tradition is produced by Lab Performing Arts Initiative Inc., (LPAI) which is a non-profit organization designed to enrich the lives of young people through the performing arts. In 2018 this show was so popular that, after selling-out two performances in 48 hours, LPAI had to add additional performance to meet demand. As preparation for the 2019 season begins, LPAI is asking you or your organization to consider becoming a corporate sponsor. As an elite donor, you will help bring an expertly choreographed show, featuring both professional dancers and youth dancers from ages five-years-old and beyond, to the stage. Your kind contribution will allow this non-profit to elevate a diverse group of talented children and allow them to dream a little bigger. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
The Lab Performing Arts Initiative is a 501C 3 non-profit organization designed to enrich the lives of young people through the performing arts with an emphasis on dance. Our mission is to cultivate and educate new generations of life-long dancers and arts advocates.
