For more than 25 years, the Anaheim Ballet has gotten the holiday season off to a spectacular start with its production of Tchaikovsky's timeless dance. From towering Christmas trees to menacing mice and more, this version of the quintessential family favorite is always updated to bring fresh thrills to audiences, who can't help but get wrapped up in the magical story of young Clara. She dreams that her new toy nutcracker soldier has come to life, and together they experience a fantastical adventure that leads them through an epic battle with the Mouse King to reach the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Kingdom of Sweets. The production is accompanied by a live performance from Symphony Irvine. Learn More

I have seen this show multiple times, usually at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. The show as always was good, but the venue was HORRIBLE. The tiers are not graduated, so I could not see anything on the stage. Anything that was above the stage was good, but that was it. I couldn't see the humor in the show, so I didn't get any of the jokes or anything. I will never attend anything at the Grove again.

STOMP, an overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards, and sell-out engagements, is the winner of an Olivier Award for Best Choreography (London's Tony Award), a New York Obie Award, a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience, and a Special Citation from Best Plays. The young performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says co-creator/director Luke Cresswell. Stiff-bristle brooms become a sweeping orchestra; Zippo lighters flip open and closed to create a fiery fugue; wooden poles thump and clack in a rhythmic explosion. STOMP uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – trashcans, tea chests, plastic bags, plungers, boots, and hubcaps – to fill the stage with compelling and infectious rhythms.
STOMP is directed and created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas.
