Short and Sweet Nutcracker Matinees

Experience The Nutcracker in one hour in these condensed matinee shows that are perfect for the young and young at heart! Please note, these two shows will not feature the Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra.

“The Nutcracker” follows a young girl, Clara, through her adventures on Christmas Eve during a party visited by her mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer. Life size dolls and toy soldiers create an evening that grows even more fantastical as she falls asleep and witnesses toy soldiers battling mice and rats. A journey through the Land of Snow leads her to a world led by the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier, and filled with dancing candies and sweets performing for her and her soldier prince.

This show is possible thanks to the generous support of Fort Fund.
