It's a Wonderful Nutcracker!
December 13-15 & 21-22, 2019
Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center

It’s a Wonderful Nutcracker blends the magic and awe of a traditional Nutcracker with inspiration from Frank Capra’s 1940’s iconic film, "It's a Wonderful Life.” This production has been embraced by audiences for its warmth, whimsy, and original blending of these two classic tales. Adults appreciate the ballet's humor, poignant message, and world-class dancing, while youngsters perch on the edge of their seats as dancing dolls magically appear, toy soldiers battle mischievous mice, snowflakes swirl, and a beautiful angel appears. This is a holiday production that you and your family will want to see!

Many talented WES students are performing in this beautiful production — come see them! Fiona B., Phoebe C., Sophia C., Siena dH, Eleanor G., Siena S., and Sofia S.
