Treat your family to The Nutcracker, a glittering spectacle of holiday cheer presented by the Central Illinois Ballet. The performance will feature Central Illinois Ballet's newly-formed  professional company, students at Cornerstone Academy, and professional guest artists from New York and Chicago.

The Nutcracker's magical story and Tchaikovsky famous score make this a time-tested holiday classic for the whole family. It's the story of young Clara and her mischievous uncle, Herr Drosselmeyer, who concocts a fantasy world for her replete with a growing Christmas tree and a Nutcracker doll that comes to life and battles a Mouse King. With the defeat of the Mouse King brings a fantastical sleigh ride through falling snow and dancing snowflakes. Clara's visit to the Land of Sweets is a showcase of dancing treats presented by the Sugar Plum Fairy herself.

This holiday classic is perfect for the entire family and a wonderful introduction to the world of ballet.

Central Illinois Ballet is directed by veteran ballet dancer Rebekah VonRathonyi and is located at 3117 N. Prospect Rd., Peoria.
