Dance Prism’s presentation of The Nutcracker is a fully-staged professional production featuring lively choreography, Tchaikovsky’s beloved music, and the traditional delights of this favorite holiday tradition. Dance Prism’s Nutcracker offers an affordable, family-friendly opportunity to celebrate the holidays with a production enjoyed throughout New England since 1982.

The performance follows Clara’s magical journey from a traditional 19th century Christmas party through a fantastic battle of toy soldiers and giant mice and a voyage through the ethereal kingdom of Snow, arriving finally at the Land of the Sugarplum Fairy where sweets from all lands come to life and dance in her honor.

Tchaikovsky’s exquisite score accompanies a cast of 140 professional and aspiring dancers as well as a growing Christmas tree, a reindeer drawn sleigh amidst a swirling snowstorm, and the clash of swords as a menacing Rat King battles the valiant Nutcracker Prince.
