“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.

This production replaces the European setting with a 19th century American one and Clara and the mysterious Dr.Drosselmeyer embark on their fabulous adventure with toy soldiers battling armies of mice,the Snow King and Snow Queen whisk them away to their enchanted forest and the sugar plum fairies entice them with fabulous ,exotic confections. Marvelous dance routines, great costumes and puppetry make this an delightful experience for the entire family.

Performances start on Friday,December 9th and continue through the 27th
