All Nutcracker Sweets performances at the ARC Dance Performance Space in Ballard have sold out for the past 17 years. “We are excited to bring our Nutcracker to the North Central Cascades for the first time. The story behind the Nutcracker takes place in Germany, so Leavenworth’s Bavarian atmosphere is a perfect fit. I hope the performances will become a holiday tradition in the region,” said Artistic Director and Choreographer Marie Chong.
Designed with young audiences in mind, the show runs roughly 90 minutes (including one 15 minute intermission) and features beautiful music, colorful costumes, and exciting dancing.
