The Nutcracker (in a Nutshell) takes children through the classic ballet The Nutcracker in just 30 minutes. Set to Tchaikovsky’s music, the Nutcracker Prince, the Rat King, the Snow Queen, and the Sugar Plum Fairy and all her friends make an appearance. There’s a holiday craft before the show and after the short “fuss-friendly” performance, children are invited to participate in dance and imaginative play with the dancers.

Perfectly suited for children 0 – 6 and their grown-ups, but all ages are welcome!
