The Lakeville City Ballet has been robbed of dozens of costumes and some major set pieces for its annual production of "The Nutcracker."
So who would want to steal a bunch of tights and a big sleigh? A competing ballet company in dire financial straits? A Rat King determined to triumph in the end?
The lock on the storage facility was intact, so it looks like an inside job. Meanwhile neighboring city ballets have offered to lend costumes and/or hold fundraisers to help out. Fortunately dress rehearsals don't start until October.
