Feel the warmth and wonder of the holidays when the curtain rises again at The Nutcracker, now more meaningful than ever. For over 30 years, The Nutcracker has become a beloved Anchorage tradition that reminds us to dream bigger, leap higher, and experience the wonder of being a kid again.

The elegant Eugene Ballet and young Alaska dancers coordinated by Alaska Dance Theatre return to the stage for this community celebration, accompanied by live music from Anchorage Symphony Orchestra. Whether it’s your first or fiftieth time, you’ll cheer and boo as The Nutcracker battles the Mouse King, and delight as children giggle and gasp at the spectacle of this whimsical wonderland.

Bring your family back to the PAC and create lifelong memories together this Thanksgiving weekend for The Nutcracker.
