The Nutcracker presented by Studio West Dance Theatre
Studio West Dance Theatre will kick off the holiday season in the newly refurbished Washington Center for the Performing Arts with the quintessential holiday ballet, The Nutcracker! Take in the splendor of the Center and enjoy a whimsical trip to the Sugar Plum Kingdom where magical dances come to life, with professional sets, costumes, and performers! This celebrated production will transport audiences of all ages into a winter wonderland that has become a lasting holiday tradition. Studio West’s rendition of this holiday classic is blended seamlessly with traditional ballet and comical surprises the whole family will love, and certain to have you dancing in your seats.
We invite our young patrons ages 3 and up to join us at Clara’s Nutcracker Party, beginning one hour before each matinee performance. Make a holiday keepsake, delight in a reading of The Nutcracker story, visit and take pictures with characters from the ballet, and enjoy holiday refreshments.
