A magical classic holiday tradition performed since 1950! Enjoy the festivities of Clara’s party. See the Nutcracker come to life and Clara help defeat the Mouse King. Journey through the icy forest as beautiful snowflakes whirl about and then join Clara when visions of sugar plums delightfully entertain in the Kingdom of Sweets.

Due to theater closures resulting from COVID-19 related restrictions, Nutcracker will be performed and recorded in our studio and is available through Vimeo beginning December 25th! Videos are $15 to rent, $20 to purchase and $100 for a bundle of 5 or more performances. We thank you for supporting VBC’s Nutcracker.
