The Dance of the Snowflakes is one of the most beautiful numbers in the Nutcracker Ballet. Come and be part of the magic as these snowflakes swirl and twirl across the stage of the Sid Williams Theatre.

Nutcracker comes to life

Friday Dec. 19, and Saturday Dec. 20 at the Sid Williams Theatre

Are you looking for some magic this holiday season? Come enter the dream world of The Nutcracker Ballet! Dancing snowflakes, skipping gumdrops, and waltzing flowers are all a part of this charmed production.

Staged by the Laurie Tinkler School of Dance, this adapted version of the seasonal classic is sure to enchant you. The fantasy of young Clara begins on Christmas Eve when Godfather Drosselmyer brings magical gifts for the party guests. Baby dolls, a Jack-In-The -Box and even a teddy bear all come to life through the magic of the toymaker.

The highlight of Christmas Eve comes when Clara is given the  gift of a wonderful Nutcracker. Later that night, in her dreams, Clara experiences a terrific battle between the Nutcracker Prince and the Rat King. Later, she is whisked away on a journey to the Land of Snow where she is greeted by twirling snowflakes. In the Land of Sweets Clara is presented with dancing treats from Arabia, Spain and Russia. Her joy is complete as she meets the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Join Clara in the delights of her evening with her beloved Nutcracker. Tickets are now on sale at the Sid Williams Box Office. Three shows are being offered.
