Tickets are distributed on a first come, first serve basis before each show as a free gift to the community.
"The dancers look forward to it every year," said Joanne Arduino, director of the show. "Perfect gift back to the community."
The theater will continue to perform the ballet through Monday evening at the center in Scranton.
