An annual holiday tradition at the Barclay Theatre, the Festival Ballet presents its full-length production of The Nutcracker. Set to the cherished Tchaikovsky score, the ballet tells the timeless coming-of-age story of Clara, a young girl who receives a wooden nutcracker soldier as a Christmas gift. That night she dreams that her nutcracker comes to life and battles the ferocious Mouse King. As he and Clara defeat the wicked beast together, the nutcracker transforms into a handsome prince, who takes Clara on a grand adventure to the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Kingdom of Sweets. This full-length, traditional production is choreographed and directed by Festival Ballet Theatre's Artistic Director Salwa Rizkalla, and features a cast of professional dancers and more than 100 Southern California children. There will also be special guest performers to be announced later. Learn More

The Bobs are a four-member a capella group known for their incredible live show, witty, tuneful original material and outrageous covers of classic song. They are four dynamic personalities who represent a show that is part theatre, part comedy, part performance art, but most of all a unique evening of music. The Bobs are a “band without instruments” using just their voice and body percussion to fill the theatre with an orchestra of harmonious sound, accompanying themselves on songs that range from soulful to satire, from amazing to moving, from familiar to unimaginable. Together since 1981, The Bobs have sold out venues around the world, released twelve albums, been nominated for a Grammy, appeared on a network television, scored movies, produced commercials, been the musical commentators on National Public Radio and built themselves a legion of adoring fans.
