You are taken back in time with the majestic dancing of the party guests & children, and lively seasonal celebrations in which we witness the magic and surprising eccentricity of Uncle Drosslemeyer who brings many gifts including the special life size toys to entertain the party guests. He also brings his special creation of the very magnificent gift of the Nutcracker to Clara while her mischievous little brother, Fritz, plots to disrupt the evening. The performers will have their audience in a state of suspense and laughter throughout the entirety of the show.
Feel the joy of the season through dance and this age old tale as you follow young Clara through her extraordinary dream of an adventure.

All audience members will be swept away in time by the magic of this age old tale in this production featuring not only the spectacular dancing of internationally acclaimed guest artist, Kealan McLaughlin, with his dynamic athleticism and artistry, but also, by the impressive young dancers as they all fill the stage on their toes …leaving everyone to wonder how they can balance and twirl on just the tip of their special pointe shoes. Child friendly yet entertaining for all generations. A story full of so many characters to enjoy: fun, suspenseful, beautiful, eccentric, kind, ridiculous, mischievous, charming.
