Quotes & Highlights

This amazing production comes complete with a live horse, flying sleigh and pyrotechnics
!“Extravagant and full of technical gee-whizzery. A holiday must!” —Press-Telegram
“Festive, fantastic and fun, fun, fun! What a high? An exhilarating incandescent experience that no one should miss!” —Theater Critic John Carl Brodgon


Nutcrackers come and go, but only one is so spectacular, so charming, so heart-warming and memorable that it has become Southern California’s favorite.

For 18 years David Wilcox’s production of The Nutcracker has been seen by over a million people at the Long Beach Terrace Theater, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, the Shrine Auditorium, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and on television.

Now performed by the beautiful students from his school and joined by world-famous dancers in leading roles, this production has once again made Long Beach the “Nutcracker Capital of Southern California.”
