THE NUTCRACKER triumphantly returns to the James Lumber Center!

A little girl heroine. A mysterious godfather. An enchanted nutcracker. A magical night. Ruth Page Civic Ballet’s The Nutcracker, the popular recreation of the holiday classic, comes to the mainstage of the James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts at the College of Lake County for two performances only on Saturday, December 14, at 1 and 5 p.m.

Originally presented at Chicago’s Arie Crown Theatre from 1965 until 1997, this production recreates Ruth Page’s beautiful and beloved original full-length staging. Experience the exquisite dancing, stunning costumes and magical settings in the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sweets like never before — engaging entertainment for young and old alike!

Ticket prices are $25/$20 for adults; $24/$19 for seniors; $15 for students and teens; and $10 for children. Prices do not include an additional $2 per ticket facility fee.
