This year’s Nutcracker is all new, all Kansas, and all dance. Remarkably fresh and filled with music, dance, magic, mystery and spectacle, this newly envisioned ballet production is a seasonal favorite. Based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s original story and set in Kansas, our production lets families witness the magic and wonder of Drosselmeyer and Clara defeating the Mouse Queen and liberating the Nutcracker Prince from his enchanted form.
