Ballet Workshop's all original staging of The Nutcracker returns as the family event of the holiday, joining together over 150 local ballet students, theatrical performers and principal dancers from Seattle's famed Pacific Northwest Ballet. Set in the great depression of Clallam County of 1895, you will follow the adventure of young Marie and her brother Frank, who are given a magical gift of a nutcracker at the family's Christmas Eve barn dance, located in the foothills of Hurricane Ridge. As festivities come to an end, Marie and Frank are taken on an epic journey with the Nutcracker Prince to a fairy-tale land where Sugar Plums dance and lavender sparkles in every field. Set to Tchaikovsky's traditional Nutcracker score, this homegrown production will capture your heart as it pays tribute to the richness of life on the Peninsula at the turn of the century. Praised by Port Angeles critics and audiences alike, this is a holiday event you will want to enjoy with your entire family, young and old, for years to come.
