2 Watson Place, Saxonville

Event Highlights

5 pm - Reception

Join us for a unique cultural experience in an unusual historic setting – a ballet performance in the round – fun for the whole family. The performance is graciously provided as a fundraiser by Meghan Powers, Director and the students and staff of Mass Ballet for the restoration of The Athenaeum Hall as a Community Hall for Framingham.

This hour-long performance will include selected dances from "The Nutcracker Suite" (the full performance will air the following week at the Framingham High School auditorium). There will be a reception before the performance with seasonal treats and beverages for all tastes, a short update on the Athenaeum Restoration Project and "Sweet Endings" and coffee after the show.
