Make The Nutcracker part of your family’s holiday traditions! The Children’s Ballet is proud to present Tchaikovsky’s beloved classic for the first time in Hendricks County.
The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet with a score written by Pyotr Tchaikovksy and originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. The original performance was on December 18, 1892, and The Nutcracker has since become one of the most well-known and beloved ballets, especially around the Christmas season.
Our production of The Nutcracker will feature performances by our friends at Hendricks Civic Theatre and professional dancers from area dance companies, as well as a special guest appearance by Bill Franklin (Courthouse Grounds) as Godfather Drosselmeyer.
