The Nutcracker

Join the Ballet Theatre of Carmel Academy’s pre-professional ballet company for this spectacular holiday tradition in the heart of downtown Zionsville!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

Experience the magic of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker – the classic story of a girl and her beloved nutcracker doll that comes to life! You will be transported on an enchanted journey – from a joyous holiday party at The Stahlbaum’s, into an epic midnight battle between mice and toy soldiers, to the Kingdom of Snow, and finally through the Land of Sweets. Along the way you’ll meet iconic characters including Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, Godfather Drosselmeyer, the evil Mouse Queen, the beautiful Snow Queen, Mother Ginger and her Gingersnaps, and of course the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier!

From the spectacular costumes, to the stunning sets, to the timeless music, this Nutcracker experience will be one you won’t soon forget!

This is a family-friendly production with plenty of pre- and post-show activities to get everyone into the holiday spirit! Children and adults alike will be thrilled to pick out a delicious treat at the Land of Sweets Bake Sale. And finishing your Christmas shopping will be easy as you browse the splendid Nutcracker Boutique! It’s filled with handmade and specially selected items— think Nutcrackers of all shapes and sizes, hand-decorated pointe shoes, ballerina ornaments and more—for the dancer or Nutcracker enthusiast in your family. After the show, dancers will be available for a meet-and-greet in the lobby.
