The Nutcracker follows a young girl, Clara, through her adventures on Christmas Eve during a party visited by her mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer. Life size dolls and toy soldiers create an evening that grows even more fantastical as she falls asleep and witnesses toy soldiers battling mice and rats. A journey through the Land of Snow leads her to a world led by the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier, and filled with dancing candies and sweets performing for her and her soldier prince.
“We are so excited to present The Nutcracker once again for the Northern Colorado community”, says executive director, Jenna Riedi, “And in addition to our usual fabulous weekend of performances, we are including two additional opportunities to enjoy and celebrate this amazing holiday tradition: an abbreviated Nutcracker for those looking for a shorter experience, and a Nutcracker Tea!”
