George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker

As fall settles in, the weather is cooler
You’ve sharpened your pencils, you’ve got a new ruler
Visions of Sugarplums are close behind,
And magic (the sparkly, holiday kind).
Join us for Candy Canes, Snowflakes, and Mice –
A show so fantastic you might see it twice.
The Nutcracker’s coming, this November/December,
A fun family date you’ll be sure to remember!

Run Time: 2 hours and 3 minutes, including a 25-minute intermission.
