A Harbor Country holiday tradition happily returns to the New Buffalo Performing Arts Center as Southold Dance Theater takes the stage for the Harbor Country Nutcracker.
For over one hundred years, the story of this ballet has proven irresistible to both children and adults. Set in nineteenth-century Germany, the ballet opens at a family Christmas party. The mysterious Dr. Drosselmeyer gives his niece Clara a magical toy that takes her on an unforgettable journey. From the battle scene between the Rat King and the Nutcracker in the first act, to the land of sweets with the Sugar Plum Fairy in the second act, the Harbor Country Nutcracker is sure to enchant audiences of all ages.
Local students will appear in this year’s performance of the Harbor Country Nutcracker in roles as Little Mice and Lambs.
Tickets are available at the New Buffalo Performing Arts Center on the day of the performance.
$8 for children, $12 for adults
Residents of Chikaming, New Buffalo, and Three Oaks Township receive free admission.
