Support the Alameda Civic Ballet

This holiday season prepare to be transported on a magical journey with Clara and the Nutcracker Prince. From the heroic battle against the Mouse King, travel through the Land of the Snowflakes and on to the Kingdom of the Sweets. There you will meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and be entertained by the wonders of the Land of Enchantment. Choreographed by Artistic Director Abra Rudisill with gorgeous costumes and beautiful sets - all to the classic Tchaikovsky score - this is a production sure to bring out the child in all of us. Whether this is your first time seeing a Nutcracker production or it is a time honored holiday tradition, make Alameda Civic Ballet's Nutcracker part of your holiday festivities.

Families are welcome to these performances, but everyone will need a ticket. Babies on laps are not permitted. Please use your best judgement as to whether your child can sit quietly through a 2 hour performance. Thank you.
