In this holiday favorite brought to you each year by Kelsey Theatre and Dance Connection, young ballerinas dance a narrated and abridged version of Tchaikovsky's beloved ballet. Through music and dance, they tell the story of young Clara, who sneaks downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favorite present from Uncle Drosselmeyer –a Nutcracker. Alone with her toy, she is suddenly confronted by the menacing Mouse King! Saved by her sweet Nutcracker Prince, she is whisked away to the Land of The Sweets. Awaiting her are the Snow Queen and her king, along with snow fairies, dancing sugar plums and toy soldiers.
