An annual yuletide delight that reminds us all of the wonder and excitement of the holiday season. In The Nutcracker, a young girl named Clara receives a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve, and sets out on a wondrous journey to the Land of the Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets. A giant Christmas tree, toy soldiers, and life-sized dancing dolls fill the stage, and a fantastic dream with battling mice, dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, and the delightful Sugar Plum Fairy stir the imagination. Experience this traditional holiday classic with the Southland’s largest and most lavish production, including a cast of over 80 performers. Now in its 14th season, Inland Pacific Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition your family will treasure.
