The NutcRacker

A holiday tradition filled with magic, wonder, and warmth

The production - the east bay’s premier family friendly nutcracker

Don’t miss Robbie Nichols and Sally Streets’ charming The Nutcracker, featuring BBT’s Youth Division dancers as well as guest artists from around the Bay Area. Berkeley Ballet Theater’s rendition of the holiday classic The Nutcracker has been an East Bay favorite for decades. A magical and truly “touching . . . performance” (Alastair MacCaulay, New York Times), this heartwarming story celebrates the holiday spirit of giving and is an extension of the school’s commitment to sharing goodness and love with those less fortunate.
