Marching toy soldiers, waltzing snowflakes, mischievous mice and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score are quintessential hallmarks of the holidays. Celebrate the season with Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's student production of The Nutcracker, a holiday ballet for the whole family. Featuring dancers of all ages, The Nutcracker tells the story of young Clara, who receives a gift of a wooden nutcracker doll at her parents' Christmas party. That night, she dreams her nutcracker comes to life and together they battle the wicked Mouse King and journey through an enchanted forest of snow to reach the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy and all her sweet subjects await them.

Quotes & Highlights
- “...Washington’s troupe is now stronger than ever, able to enliven the choreography with a vivid expressiveness while performing at a level that is often simply jaw-dropping.... Hands down this was one of the most profound performances not only of the year, but of a lifetime...” --Dance Magazine
Acclaimed L.A.-based modern dance ensemble Lula Washington Dance Theatre returns to the Luckman for a performance featuring the works of Donald McKayle. The 10-member modern dance troupe, based in the inner city of South Central Los Angeles, has risen to become one of the largest and most admired African-American dance companies on the West Coast. Composed of young, athletic dancers, many of whom were groomed in Washington’s inner city dance studio, the company is known for exploring theatrical, entertaining, and energetic works that are accessible to all audiences.
