More Information


It’s the night before Christmas, a night filled with the dreams and wishes of children. And for a girl named Clara, it will be a night in which her dreams come true. Clara and the Prince arrive in the Land of the Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy is Queen. Clara is greeted by an array of angels. The Prince describes their battle with the army of mice. Clara is praised for her bravery in saving the Nutcracker, and the Sugar Plum Fairy invites her to sit on the throne and preside over the festivities. Wonderful confections from many lands dance for Clara. The Sugar Plum Fairy, herself, dances with the Cavalier and everyone joins in the final waltz. Suddenly, Drosselmeyer appears and Clara finds herself becoming drowsy. Her newfound friends seem to be melting away like ice with each wave of her Godfather’s hand. Having said goodbye to her Nutcracker Prince, she falls asleep – or has she really been asleep all the while? No matter, for Clara will always remember this magical night when all her dreams came true.

Performance will last approximately 1 hour.
