The Nutcracker is a treasured classic that tells the story of a little girl named Clara who is given a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. Embarking on a wondrous journey through the Kingdom of Snow and the Land of Sweets, Clara encounters many unforgettable and timeless characters.

You can catch the remaining performances of The Nutcracker on December 16th at Caesar's and December 23rd at The Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood.

Throughout 2023, the Atlantic City Ballet had performances in Greate Bay Country Club in Somers Point, Ocean City, The Strand in Lakewood, and the Stafford Township Arts Center. The company returns in April with performances of Swan Lake at Caesar's and The Strand.
