Whidbey Island Dance Theater's The Nutcracker

Whidbey Island Dance Theatre's 26th season of The Nutcracker, a holiday delight for the whole family!

WIDT’s production of this classical ballet set to the music of Tchaikovsky features many of the beloved characters and themes of the traditional ballet but with a Whidbey Island twist.

Join us as Clara and the Nutcracker Prince travel through a hidden magical cave deep in the Puget Sound where mermaids swim among silky strands of seaweed and dance on pearls. Share their wonder as they stroll through the wild and lush Enchanted Forest where they meet our graceful Faerie Queen and Forest King, and confront a dreadful Dragon. Marvel at the fleeting elegance of our beautiful flowers and swallowtail butterflies. And of course, meet the matron of all forest creatures, Madame Bumble, who introduces us to some of the most adorable critters we have ever seen.
