We took our 4yr old to this performance last year. Extremely well done, and very child-friendly for young ones who aren't ready for larger productions downtown. Absolutely put us in the holiday spirit.

We attended the Petite Performance last year and our whole family loved it! Our daughters especially loved meeting the performers at the end. This year we purchased tickets for the full length performance. We love making this a yearly tradition! Highly recommend.

Great for preschoolers, but it sells out quickly!

We have tickets for the preschool petite performance. A friend tried to get tickets a few days later but they were already sold out. If you want to attend one of these shows, you may want to call in October next year to get the on sale date.

This show has a special Girl Scout discount that includes behind the scenes. Great show to take Brownies, Juniors, etc. in a small venue for a reasonable price.

Attending BalletNova's Nutcracker production has become an annual event for our family and a group of friends. The production is professionally done, thoroughly engaging, and more than kid-friendly. Children of all ages have enjoyed the show immensely, and its certainly encouraged a love of dance in both my children. The show has an intermission during which they sell inexpensive snacks and offer Nutcracker-themed gifts for sale at reasonable prices. The venue is small (TJ Community Center theater) and every seat has a good view. We LOVE this show and look forward to attending for many more years.
