Totally enjoyed the ambiance of the theater. Used the free shuttle for parking and was dropped off right out front and picked up right after the show and taken back to our parking lot.

Wonderful production with a great Chinese dancers surprise! The Russian dancers were a bit disappointing.

Never been to the ballet before this so this was a very cheery holiday intro to the ballet world. The theater was lovely and cast were wonderful at what they did.

Discover the magic of the holiday season with family and friends at Southern California’s most spectacular production of The Nutcracker. Celebrating their 16th season, critically acclaimed Inland Pacific Ballet brings The Nutcracker to life in this magical production with dazzling sets, beautiful costumes, and more than 100 dancers on stage.

This annual yuletide favorite tells the story of a young girl named Clara who 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. Toy soldiers, life-sized dancing dolls, and a fantastic dream with battling mice, dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, and the delightful Sugar Plum Fairy stir the imagination.

This is family entertainment at its best – and after the performance, cast members will be available for photos and autographs. IPB’s The Nutcracker is the holiday tradition your family will treasure!
