The Nutcracker


"The Nutcracker"

THE holiday event in downtown Greensboro is our very own sparkling production of The Nutcracker in the dazzling & recently renovated Carolina Theatre!

Greensboro Ballet invites you to bring your family & friends to the festive holiday tradition of the season! Swirling snowflakes, giant mice, dolls that come to life and sweets from around the world are just some of the characters you'll experience as you join Clara on her magical adventure.

Did you know that Greensboro has a BIG hunger problem? In such a vibrant & generous community this seems inconceivable. This year, when you come to Clara's home to celebrate the holidays with her, we are asking our Nutcracker audiences to bring food & other items to donate to some amazing local charities. Each day, we will be taking donations for Greensboro residents that don't have enough food for dinner, let alone a party with friends, or in some cases even a warm home to keep them from the cold of winter snow. You can celebrate the holidays with your family & friends and help to support your fellow citizens at the same time!
