The House’s fresh take on this holiday classic centers on young Clara’s journey to save Christmas. With the help of a magical nutcracker, this brave little girl will fight the Rat King and save her family! This modern holiday production weaves together riveting dialogue, astonishing puppetry, original song and spellbinding spectacle to tell a heartwarming, darkly moving story of magic and hope — a fun outing fit for the whole family.

SPECIAL NOTE: This Event Takes Place Thanksgiving Weekend. Feel free to bring any visiting friends or family along to the show! It’s a great way to start off the holiday season!

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - Keith Griffith, CHICAGO READER
    "...The House Theatre's gorgeous, arresting annual holiday show bears only a faint resemblance to Tchaikovsky's ballet. Instead of bratty kids and sugarplum fairies, Jake Minton and Phillip Klapperich's tightly spun book introduces a family wracked by tragic loss. But magic still abounds, and in quantities that will bring a tear to the eye of even the stingiest Grinch."


    RECOMMENDED - Katy Walsh, CHICAGO NOW
    "...THE NUTCRACKER is magical. It has gritty reality coupled with sugar-plum dreams. It challenges us to find the light in dark times, especially at the holidays. If you haven’t experienced it yet, it’s time to start a new Christmas tradition."
