Golden State Dance Foundation and V & T Dance bring The Nutcracker to life on stage in Santa Ana. This full-length production of the magical holiday ballet features more than 50 local dancers, aged 4-18. Set to Tchaikovsky's timeless score, the ballet tells the story of a young girl who receives a Nutcracker doll for Christmas. That night, she and her Nutcracker prince experience a magical dream adventure that begins with an epic battle against the Mouse King and takes them through the Land of the Snowflakes to the Kingdom of Sweets, ruled by the enchanting Sugar Plum Fairy. Come celebrate our 25th anniversary production!
