Wilmington’s very own annual Christmas tradition at the Playhouse turns 51!

This holiday season, you and your loved ones will be treated to something very special, a performance that lifts your holiday spirit and a wondrous experience that evokes joy and happiness to kids of all ages.

The Nutcracker follows the story of young Clara on Christmas night as she is tangled in a battle between the Nutcracker and the Mouse King, and travels through the Land of Sweets. Snowflakes become dancing maidens. Hot Chocolate, Mandarin Tea, Arabian Coffee, Marzipan, and Mother Ginger and her children perform for Clara’s entertainment. With the breathtakingly beautiful dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier, Clara’s fairytale adventure concludes as she awakens next morning under the Christmas tree.
