Our Next Show

Santa's Reindeer Present: The Nutcracker!

December 11-22

The talented Reindeer from the North Pole are back, this time producing their own version of the famous ballet for an audience of elves and reindeer. As the Nutcracker himself, Blitzen is enchanted by a magical witch (played by the reindeer Vixen) and can only pull Santa's sleigh if he defeats the Mouse King, travels to far off lands, and a beautiful maiden falls in love with him. What happens when Blitzen falls asleep, Vixen can't remember his lines and Comet replaces the Nutcracker toy with… a spatula? Mayhem ensues! Will the reindeer finish the show before Santa needs them for his sled? Find out in this exciting new version of The Nutcracker.
This is a great child's first introduction to this beloved story!
