Choreographed by James Canfield, NBT’s The Nutcracker is a magical journey through a larger than life world filled with waltzing flowers, nimble fairies, and moonlit snow. Glittering holiday cheer abounds as Clara and her handsome Prince travel from the warmth of her family home to a land of toy soldiers, mischievous rodents and exotic visitors from faraway lands.

Before settling into your seat at The Nutcracker, you’ll want the entire family to enjoy NBT’s fun, family-friendly bonus experience: The Nutcracker Wonderland. Located inside the Troesh Theatre space, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, this glittering holiday environment will be worthy of many family ’’selfies’’ as you wander through scene after scene of holiday joy. Highlighting The Nutcracker Wonderland experience is the arrival of a special guest to read the story of The Nutcracker to all of the children. Afterwards, everyone will venture onward to Reynolds Hall where they can refresh themselves, buy a souvenir or two at The Nutcracker Boutique and get settled into their seats for the magical journey ahead with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince.

The Nutcracker Wonderland is free to all ticket holders. Doors open 60 minutes prior to curtain at the Troesh Theatre, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, and you may come and go as you please.

Have a group of 10 or more? Contact NBT Group Sales at (702) 243-2623 for information on priority seating, special discounts and exclusive experiences.

As a courtesy to our ticket holders, no children under 3 years of age are admitted to the performances.
