Join us for our 9th year at Cabrillo! Kick off the Holidays with tradition and family fun. Add some sparkle to your season with the magical Nutcracker Ballet, a spectacular performance sure to delight and inspire. Gorgeous costumes, dazzling sets, and exquisite dancing!

Santa Cruz City Ballet @ International Academy of Dance presents the full length Nutcracker Ballet with local talent and guest artists from the Bay Area and beyond. What better way to bring in the season than with smiles, laughter, and joy?

Artistic Director and Juilliard Alumnae, Shannon Chipman, began her Nutcracker tradition as the Snow Queen in the first ever production of the Nutcracker in Santa Cruz at Cabrillo's theater in 1988 and is thrilled to continue to share the timeless tradition with the community alongside SCCB Director/Choreographer, Vicki Berglund, and Choreographer Melissa Palumbo. The SCDG/IAD production has become a steadfast holiday tradition. Every year there is something new to see! We can't wait to see you there!
