Las Vegas’ favorite holiday tradition returns to the stage! At last, it’s time to rejoice and celebrate with family and friends as we gather together once again. This holiday season is sure to be the most joyous season of them all, so we invite you to revel in the sparkling cheer and gorgeous beauty of NBT’s The Nutcracker. Happy Holidays, indeed!

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 the performance, enjoy NBT’s fun, family-friendly bonus experience: The Nutcracker Wonderland sponsored by C.A. Hartnell and Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas. 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. 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.
