Experience the magic of Ballet Midwest’s Nutcracker, a holiday tradition since 1977!

Ballet Midwest’s Nutcracker is a holiday tradition for our family! The talent of these dancers is amazing!

For forty-five years, Ballet Midwest has been entertaining audiences with the magical Nutcracker Ballet set to the unforgettable score by Tchaikovsky. Join Clara at a Christmas Eve party where she receives a gift that will soon take her on a fantastic journey. Feel the joy of a Christmas Eve party, marvel at the special effects and excitement as the Nutcracker battles the Mouse King, watch as the snow falls gently in the forest and marvel as the dancers entertain you in the Kingdom of Enchantment. You don’t want to miss this Topeka holiday tradition!
