December 17-23, 2020 | Music Hall

Create a cherished family tradition in the Land of Sweets! Join Clara and her Nutcracker Prince in this re-envisioned holiday classic, The Nutcracker presented by Frisch’s Big Boy. During a Victorian Christmas party, a visit from her uncle and a mysterious gift begin Clara’s wondrous journey to a magical land. Along the way, Clara meets a colorful cast of characters including the Snow King and Queen, some frisky mirlipoos, a bouquet of beautiful flowers, and of course, the Sugar Plum Fairy. Artistic Director Victoria Morgan’s colorful, whimsical choreography is a treat to behold, in this hour-long performance in the Music Hall Ballroom.
