Enjoy the magic and beauty of a timeless classic this holiday season as Southern New Hampshire Dance Theater performs The Nutcracker, based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffman with music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The show opens in a 19th Century home in Germany, where a special Christmas gift is given from a mysterious and loving uncle to his young and curious niece Clara. With delicate costumes and engaging and vivid imagery, Clara’s dream comes to life onstage at the historic Palace Theatre. This holiday classic is a tradition for the whole family to enjoy.
