The Nutcracker has been performed in various cities since 1987 and now the performance comes to Chicago at the Auditorium Theatre. The story tells the whimsical story of Clara and Dr. Drosselmeyer meeting the Nutcracker Prince and the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy. The Nutcracker has thrilled thousands of theatregoers and is the perfect family outing for the holiday season. Not only is the story enchanting, the costumes, scenery, and of course, dancing make this production one of the best ever. The story also comes alive with music from theChicago Philharmonic with a score from Tchaikovsky.

The production also has a Chicago connection with children performing from several choirs like Providence-St.Mel.  The Joffrey Ballet gives back often to Chicago through after-school programs for middle-school children as well.  The Nutcracker is a must-see theatre event that Chicago theatregoers will love.
