Featuring the professional dancers of Ballet Arkansas and a community cast of children and adults, the production is an unforgettable celebration of the season. Performances are set to Tchaikovsky’s paramount score, and this year’s production will feature special guests, including Santa, and updates to the choreography and costumes. Ballet Arkansas’s official Nutcracker Boutique in the lobby will be open one hour prior to each public performance and patrons may take advantage of photo opportunities with Santa, the Nutcracker, Sugar Plum Fairy, and other costumed characters. Clement Clarke Moore’s “The Night Before Christmas” will be read by Santa from the stage at intermission of each performance.
