Special guests from the community will include Connecticut Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman and Chad Williams, director of program services for the Boys & Girls Club of Hartford.
Closer to home, University President Walter Harrison, Women's Basketball Head Coach Jennifer Rizzotti, and Emily Audibert '13, the reigning Miss Connecticut, will make appearances in The Nutcracker.

Another University celebrity, mascot Howie the Hawk, will also make a cameo appearance in The Nutcracker.
