18 October 2019

BILOXI, Miss. – Beau Rivage Resort & Casino is proud to host the annual Sugar Plum Fairy Tea Party presented by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Ballet Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the resort’s Camellia Ballroom.

“This holiday tradition is the ballet’s main fundraiser and an exciting event for families. Children can enjoy multiple stations of hands on fun led by a fairy and characters from the Nutcracker Ballet. Each year the event becomes more popular with returning and new guests,” says Mississippi Gulf Coast Ballet Theatre Director Elaine Kulick.

Children can enter the enchanted fairy garden and get their fairy wings, craft ornaments, decorate cupcakes and create custom fairy dust slime with characters from the Nutcracker Ballet. Clara and friends are available for photo opportunities and will perform excerpts from the ballet, while Drosselmyer makes balloon magic.

Extravagant displays of hot chocolate, ornate teas and pastries will delight children of all ages. Families can commemorate this holiday event with a special picture from Snaparazzi Photobooth Company.

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased by calling 228-324-6296 or visiting www.msgulfcoastballettheatre.com. For a full schedule of Beau Rivage Christmas events, visit www.beaurivage.com.
