With a growing Christmas tree and swirling snowstorm, Tchaikovsky's timeless score and stirring choreography performed by a cast of 140 professional and pre-professional dancers, Dance Prism's annual performance of The Nutcracker has something to enchant everyone in the family. This holiday ballet tells the story of a young girl named Clara who receives a magical nutcracker doll one Christmas Eve and sets out on a wondrous journey to the Land of the Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets. Jackson Arts Center at Bristol Community College is the perfect place to experience this much-beloved ballet that always dazzles with its battling mice, dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers and the delightful Sugar Plum Fairy. Young audience members are invited to stay after the performance and meet Clara and her Nutcracker Prince!
This show is recommended for ages 3 and older.
Running time is just under two hours, with one intermission.
