Event Type
Event Description

A traditional holiday classic for young and old alike. Meet the young Clara and her hero, the Nutcracker, as you are transported on a magical journey, encountering toys that come alive, dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, and the Sugar Plum Fairy along the way. The Chicago Sun-Times calls the production "A solid, professional 'Nutcracker'," and Laura Molzahn of the Chicago Tribune calls Salt Creek Ballet "A real treat." An enchanting holiday tradition, this year's production of "The Nutcracker" features the 48-piece Chicago West Chamber Orchestra. Sunday's performance also includes special admission to the "Sugar Plum Party" where audience members can meet characters from "The Nutcracker," step onto the stage, and enjoy refreshments in an enchanted, winter wonderland.
