A wonderful Holiday tradition! This is a full scale ballet production of the family favorite The Nutcracker. Performances at 12:30pm and 4:30pm. Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker is loosely based on the E.T.A. Hoffmann fantasy story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, about a girl who befriends a nutcracker that comes to life on Christmas Eve and wages a battle against the evil Mouse King. Come and join Clara on this magical journey! Presented by the Hopkinton Center for the Arts, under the direction of Jessica Wilson. Performances take place at Ashland High School.
