‘Tis the season for shopping, snow, gift giving, and the NUTCRACKER!  Chicago offers many chances to see this magical ballet that draws the audience into a wonderful dream, set on Christmas Eve. Every little girl dreams of being Clara and one day the beautiful and elegant Sugar Plum Fairy, and every little boy is impressed by the evil Mouse King, and the whole family is wowed by the beautiful music, graceful dancing, and of course the fantastic growing Christmas tree. Getting dressed up and going to the Nutcracker is a holiday tradition for many families, and you can be part of it this year in Chicago. Here are a few recommendations to guarantee a great production!
