The Nutcracker Cracked

This is a past event. Sunday, December 30, 2018 at 2:00pm

Portland Puppet Museum 906 S.E. Umatilla St., Portland, OR

You've never seen a version of The Nutcracker quite like this. Imagine: the entire ballet in 38 minutes -- what a time-saver! It's a miniature satire of epic proportions with Tchaikovsky's enchanting music, and 84 rod puppets. It came out wild and crazy - and oddly enough, appropriate and fun for children as well. 

Shows are 45 minutes long, and are suitable for the whole family.  The Friday, December 21 show is a special Adult Night Out show for 21+ only, with wine tasting. All other shows are all ages. The Friday, December 28 show is a special Family Night Out show, with hot chocolate and cookies. Reservations or advance tickets are recommended, as all performances usually sell out. For reservations, call 503.233.7723 or email
