The Nutcracker


Get away from it all – for 90 minutes! Take a journey with us to the Land of the Sweets!

For over 25 years, the Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet has been bringing the holiday classic ballet “The Nutcracker” to our stage.  A fun way for families to kick off the holiday season, the annual tradition features professional soloists and many of the region’s best dancers.  The enchanting music by Tchaikovsky is one of his best-known works and the ballet, set at Christmas time, has become an American holiday tradition.

Audience members are invited to take pictures with the cast members after the Saturday performance.

Ninety-minute performances are appropriate for children four years old and up. Before and after the show the lobby is a winter wonderland filled with nutcracker gifts ideal for holiday shopping.

Your child will remember your holiday traditions.
