This holiday classic takes students on a spectacular journey exploring dances inspired by other cultures. Appropriate for grades K-12, students are sure to enjoy the colorful sets, intricate costumes and engaging story. Program addresses: NC Essential Standards in Dance, Music and Social Studies, and Common Core Standards in English Language Arts. This ballet is based on a Russian short story by ETA Hoffman with music by famed composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. It has become a Christmas tradition here in America, with ballet companies, both big and small, performing this holiday ballet in almost every city in the country. What many audiences, children especially, find most appealing is the storyline of a little girl named Clara who receives a Christmas gift of a nutcracker doll from her magical Uncle Drosselmeyer.

Thank you for supporting the performing arts in Carteret County. We look forward to seeing you in December! Event takes place at West Carteret High School in Morehead City. Admission fee.
