The annual production of The Nutcracker will delight audiences with the story of Clara, a little girl whose much-loved Christmas gift springs to life and spirits her off to a magical land where toys and candies dance.
The production, directed by Artistic Team members Cristina McClelland, Maria Lamance, Xavier Ferla, and Maggie Parungao-Ferla, will offer a cherished memory for every viewer whether they're continuing a holiday tradition or making their very first journey to the Kingdom of Sweets.
