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.
