Specticast Presents: THE NUTCRACKER

Specticast Presents: THE NUTCRACKER


With Tchaikovsky’s eternally popular score, the grand staging and exquisite costumes, THE NUTCRACKER is an unforgettable holiday experience that provides treasured family memories that last a lifetime. This cinematic version of a Mariinsky Theatre production (where the original Nutcracker first made its debut in 1892) is a unique way to experience this beloved classic, which can ignite a fire in your child’s heart and re-kindle a spark of childlike wonder in your own. Journey to the deep dark holiday night where toy soldiers fight rat armies under the boughs of an ever-growing Christmas tree, and Masha and the Nutcracker sail a river in Fairyland where snowflakes dance and flowers waltz.

Grab a to-go brunch from any one of the fine restaurants on our corner: Dot's Cafe, The Workshop Pub, Broders Cafe, Sub Rosa, and The Press Club. Then head to the theater where we'll have mimosas available for your enjoyment, along with our regular selection of beer, wine and hard cider. We're an all ages venue, and children under 12 are FREE, so expose your children to this amazing entertainment without breaking the bank.

Squirming is allowed and dancing at the side of the stage is encouraged.
