The story begins at the home of Clara Stahlbaum, whose parents are hosting a Christmas party. Clara receives a nutcracker doll as a gift from her godfather, and she falls asleep as the party ends. Clara awakens to a room filled with giant mice, life-sized toy soldiers and dolls and her Nutcracker Prince; who rescues her by slaying the Rat King. The Nutcracker Prince leads Clara on a magical journey through the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets.
Studio K’s production of The Nutcracker is a Christmas tradition in the High country with hundreds of dancers and more than 400 costumes. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under.
