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

What a nice surprise this event turned out to be. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the show and were very impressed at how talented both entertainers were. Also there was no hassle in picking up our tickets which made for an easy entrance.

!“Endearingly Chaplinesque.” —Newsday
“A must see show…nothing but fabulous.” —The Daily Gazette
Jamie Adkins has a great idea for a show – he just doesn’t quite know what it is. Every crumpled-up sheet of paper he tosses away only makes this rubber-faced clown more determined to get his creation down on paper. Then one of those balls of paper bounces right back at him! This turn of events finally coaxes the Chaplinesque playwright away from his typewriter and what ensues is a non-stop barrage of hilarious escapades and amazing feats of silliness. Egged on by the melodies of a roving musician-comedian, Anne-Marie Levasseur, Jamie holds on for dear life at the top of a splitting ladder, wrestles with his own bulbous red nose, and flips and somersaults across a slack wire. A former member of Montreal’s highly-regarded Cirque Eloize and the Pickle Family Circus, Jamie brings impeccable timing and boundless wit to a show in which fun is spelled “T-y-p-o.”
