Oklahoma City Ballet's The Nutcracker, choreographed by Robert Mills, will be performed through this weekend with Tchaikovsky's score performed live at every performance by the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. The weekend dates and times are Friday, December 20 at 7:00 p.m., Saturday December 21 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., and close Sunday, December 21 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets start at $15.
This is a lovely production of The Nutcracker that brings visions of sugar plums, dancing snowflakes and a host of other fanciful characters to the child in us all.
Children's activities will include "Letters to Santa" held in the South Lobby beginning one hour prior to all performances where children will be able to prepare a letter for Santa and mail to the North Pole. Santa Claus will be in the main lobby one hour prior to all matinée performances. Families will have the opportunity to take their own photos with him as a holiday keepsake. Following each 2:00 p.m. matinée performance, a Dancer Meet and Greet with refreshments courtesy of Braum's will occur in the main lobby where children can meet, get autographs, and take pictures with dancers from The Nutcracker including Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, the Sugar Plum Fairy, and her Cavalier.
