A South Jersey tradition for more than 30 Years

The Voorhees Ballet Theatre is proud to be presenting The Nutcracker to NJ audiences for our 35th season! Set to the timeless Tchaikovsky score, The Nutcracker tells the magical story of a young girl who receives an odd gift from her Godfather at her family's Christmas party: a wooden Nutcracker. After all the guests leave, Clara realizes how incredible this Nutcracker is when he comes to life and battles an evil giant Mouse King, and takes her on an incredible journey through the Land of Sweets.

New this year, we will be offering a sensory-friendly production on Saturday, December 9 at 11am! This shorter version of The Nutcracker is designed to be more welcoming for those with sensory sensitivities.

Tickets for all performances will go on sale online in October.
