Among the holidays’ most tutu-heavy traditions, The Nutcracker regales audiences with the timeless tale of young Clara and her wooden nutcracker, which comes to life to lead Clara down a path of excitement and whimsy. Family members of all ages can treat their peepers to the lavish costumes and set design as the Nutcracker skirmishes with a rodent army led by the conniving Rat King. The slippered pageantry continues as Clara’s strong-jawed hero whisks her off to a fantastical kingdom ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy, who derives power from a crown bejeweled with dried fruit. Evergreen City’s practiced pirouetters bring the fanciful plot to life with each leap and twirl, spinning one of the holidays’ only stories that doesn’t revolve around elves that age in reverse.

The 1,100-seat Auburn Performing Arts Center and 500-seat Renton IKEA Performing Arts Center each provides excellent acoustical conditions for absorbing The Nutcracker’s famous score. Audience members should dress sharply and for all seasons, as the ballet’s famous snow scene and Waltz of the Flowers necessitate extreme fluctuations on both venues’ thermostats.

Customer Reviews

Saw the nutcracker. Very well done. My daughter loved that all the performers came out for pictures/meet & greet after!

It was a wonderful time. My 4 year old daughter loved meeting the cast of dancers - she even got their autographs. We would love to see other performances of this company and are looking forward to their Fancy Nancy production

Good value for the price I paid for Groupon. Very much a family/young kids event. Shortened version just right for my 5 year old. for me the ballet cut out some fav parts, it's aspiring & I commend the effort but the talent is very green. A couple dancers have the talent and put forth the effort to make it someday in a larger budget production but most you could tell were at x mas pageant level.
