With her Nutcracker Prince, Clara travels through the Land of Sweets, meeting colorful and exciting characters along the way.
The production is showing through December 24th. Tickets are $30 – $100 and are available to purchase online. Below are the remaining showtimes:

Each year, The Nutcracker provides the rare opportunity for young dancers to star in the featured roles of Clara and her brother, Fritz. Currently studying the lead role of Clara are Otto M. Budig Academy students, Amber Harper and Amber White. Also, while both girls have performed roles in The Nutcracker in previous years, this will be both young dancers’ first time dancing the role of Clara.
