It just isn’t the holidays without The Nutcracker, which comes to magical life this December at the San Diego Civic Theatre with a live orchestra! Audiences of all ages will enjoy the magical story of Clara, who dreams that her new toy nutcracker soldier has come to life. Together, they experience a fantastical adventure which leads them through an epic battle with the Rat King to the Sugar Plum Fairy’s magical Land of Sweets.

Choreographed by Director Maxine Mahon with Music Director John Stubbs conducting, The Nutcracker is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season with family and friends.

Patrons can meet the cast at our Sugar Plum Parties immediately following the 1:00pm, 2:30pm, and 5:30pm performances.

Special photo op on our Nutcracker Red Carpet prior to all 5:30pm and 7:30pm performances. Nut Carpet
