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 and all her friends make an appearance.

Make Christmas crafts before the show and enjoy the Waltz of the Flowers interactive character dance and creativity workshop following the performance. This is the perfect show for the winter holidays! 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!
