It's a Wonderful Nutcracker 2017

Friday, December 8, 2017

Blending the magic and tradition of the world's most beloved ballet, The Nutcracker, with inspiration of Frank Capra's 1940s classic film, It's a Wonderful Life, our heartwarming original production celebrates what is most cherished about the holidays - the chance to share time with family and loved ones.

A Holiday Treasure to Share with Those You Love!

Menlowe Ballet is thrilled to present their newest version of It's a Wonderful Nutcracker! Conceived by Artistic Director Michael Lowe, It’s a Wonderful Nutcracker is set to the original Tchaikovsky Nutcracker score, combined with jazzy renditions from Duke Ellington, and infused with inspiration from the 1940’s Frank Capra film, “It’s a Wonderful Life."  This year's production is filled with even more heartwarming moments and a message that unifies us all. 

There is a range of ticket prices from  $28.00 - $55.00 and nine performances programmed to meet everyone's budget and schedule. Please visit the ticket link to view the full series schedule.

Please note that the length of this story ballet is two hours with one 15 minute intermission. Our production is best enjoyed by children five years and older and is not suitable for infants or toddlers. All theatergoers, regardless of age, must have an individual ticket. 

This program utilizes part of the City’s allotment of programmable days at the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center (M-A PAC) as part of the City’s joint use agreement with the Sequoia Union High School District.
