Lake Arrowhead, CA – The Lake Arrowhead Classical Ballet Company invites you to experience one of the most beloved ballets in the world….The Nutcracker.




The Nutcracker will be performed on Friday, November 24, at 2:30 p.m., and on Saturday, November 25, at 1:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., as well as a matinee performance, which takes place on Sunday, November 26, at 2:30 p.m.

All performances will be held in the Rim Performing Arts Center, on the campus of Rim of the World High School, 27400 Highway 18 in Lake Arrowhead.


For over two decades, the Lake Arrowhead Classical Ballet Company has been staging the production, which has come to be a holiday tradition among mountain residents.

Artistic Director Sharon McCormick invites the public to come share an evening of musical magic, with the talented artists-in residence and special guests of the Lake Arrowhead Classical Ballet Company.


Based on the E.T.A. Hoffman’s “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” the Nutcracker was first performed in St. Petersburg Russia on December 18, 1892, and was an instant success.  It continues to be perennial favorite and one of the most oft-performed seasonal pieces in the classical dance repertoire.
