“The Nutcracker”-Joffrey Ballet

As the Holiday season gets into full swing, it is once again time for the annual Robert Joffrey’s “The Nutcracker” which will take the stage at The Auditorium Theatre making it a winter wonderland full of magical toys and waltzing snowflakes. This production has become a family tradition for Chicago audiences of all ages since 1996.

Marvelous dance routines, great costumes and puppetry make this an delightful experience for the entire family.
