We asked the cast:

What’s your favorite part of the holidays?

For me, its time with my family. Now that I live in New York and they’re still in Texas, sometimes the only time I get with them is over Christmas. They are so important to me, and being able to spend time with them and cook together and give each other presents is one of my favorite parts of the whole year.

The best part of the holidays is time with family!

My favorite thing about the holidays is being able to have a moment to have the family together to play card games, watch Elf, and eat cookies.

I have two. The first is the lights! I think it’s so beautiful that in such a physically dark time of year, there are shining and colorful lights on every street in New York. And secondly, it is the time of year I get to be with my family and spend relaxing, quality time with them.

I have performed in various Nutcracker productions as early as I can remember, so getting the chance to perform is my favorite way to celebrate.
