Tickets for our upcoming production of The Nutcracker are now on sale!

 Join us December 13-15th for this 
 heartwarming holiday favorite! This
 charming, family-friendly production
 features a cast of nearly 200 children ages
 7-18. Sumptuous handmade costumes, the
 classic Tchaikovsky score, and
 beautifully-trained dancers make this
 production a city-wide favorite, while a
 concurrent Holiday Bazaar and the
 gorgeous gothic architecture of historic
 Mandel Hall lend a festive air. A fresh
 new hip hop twist on the battle scene in
 this otherwise classical production draws
 new audiences in to the beloved ballet,
 and narration helps keep young children

 Join us this December in Hyde Park, Chicago for 90 minutes of holiday magic. Join us for
 The Nutcracker!                                                                                    LEARN MORE >>
