Al Larson Prairie Center for the Arts presents…

  • The Nutcracker …. December 2, 3, 4 and December 9, 10, 11

A seasonal favorite with audiences of all ages, Schaumburg Dance Ensemble’s 27th annual Nutcracker returns to the Al Larson Prairie Center for the Arts for ten performances this December. This full-scale production of Tchaikovsky’s enchanting holiday ballet follows the dreamlike adventures of young Clara, who, guided by a magical Nutcracker Prince, encounters dueling mice, dancing bonbons, and waltzing flowers on her journey to the Court of the Sugar Plum Fairy.  Complete with live narration, grand sets, lavish costumes, and a cast of over 130, Schaumburg Dance Ensemble’s Nutcracker is a joyous treat for the eyes and ears.

The Nutcracker plays for two weekends, December 2 through December 11 (Fridays at 7:30 pm; Saturdays & Sundays at 1 pm & 5 pm). For tickets and additional information, visit or call 847-895-3600. The Prairie Center is located at 201 Schaumburg Ct. in Schaumburg. Don’t wait to buy tickets — performances sell out quickly!
