Sunday, Dec 16, 2018 at 2:00pm


Join us this holiday season as the lights fade, the music swells, snowflakes fall, flowers waltz, and a young girl dreams about a magical sweet-filled world in the charming and magical The Nutcracker. Tustin Dance Center is pleased to delight both young and old again this holiday season with its 15th annual production of this timeless ballet. Dozens of ballerinas and dance students of all ages are sure to entertain you at historic Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton.

Set to Tchaikovsky's timeless score, The Nutcracker tells the story of a girl named Clara whose adventure begins when she is given a toy Nutcracker as a Christmas gift from her mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer during the Stahlbahm’s annual family Christmas Eve party.  Uncle Drosselmeyer entertains the guests with live dancing dolls and his eccentric ways. Later that night, after the guests depart, Clara falls asleep and dreams of a grand adventure that begins with her Nutcracker coming to life and engaging in an epic battle between mice and toys, continues with her Nutcracker becoming a handsome prince, and comes to a climax with a magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy.

In the Kingdom of Sweets, the Sugar Plum Fairy honor’s Clara with a celebration of dances. From near and far, marvelous characters come to entertain her with Spanish, Arabian, Russian, Chinese, Mirlitons and Waltz of the Flowers dances. When Clara thinks she has seen everything beautiful in the land, the Sugar Plum Fairy dances with her Cavalier.  Soon the Land of Sweets begins to get hazy and Clara opens her eyes to find herself in her parents’ house, wondering if it was all a dream.
