Ashley Wren (local Statesboro artist) of The Painted Wren is once again selling hand-painted ornaments of your child’s character in the upcoming Nutcracker performance!

Each ornament is personalized with costume, hair color, and name- as well as a big, showy burlap bow and funky hanger… They will all say your child’s name/year on front and SSOD Nutcracker 2023 and character in a sweet script on back and come in a 6×6 box with polka dot tissue… Makes the perfect gift! They are $30 each.

All characters are available even if you don’t see yours (just let her know). Ashley runs out of these ornaments each year, so be sure to place your order early.

Ornaments will be available for pick up at Nutcracker dress rehearsals on Thursday, 11/30 and Friday, 12/1.

LaRita & Co. is excited to photograph all the beautiful performers this year for Nutcracker. We will have a backdrop and props for these special portraits.

All performers will be photographed. We will follow safety guidelines. The images will be posted after the performances for you to pick your image for ordering.

The PASSCODE will be the child’s last name. Example: Morgan

If you need any help viewing and ordering, please call us at 912-764-4222 and we will be happy to assist you. Can’t wait to see everyone!
