Experience the story of The Nutcracker told through Celtic Dance from the perspective of a young
girl living in a cottage in Ireland. Her journey takes her to Tir Na Nog, the land of eternal youth,
where she finds herself transformed into a princess and receives gifts from Scottish Sword
Dancers, Cornish Dancers, Galician Dancers and more. She even meets a few leprechauns along
the way! This performance is set to the original Tchaikovsky score as well as live Celtic Music. This
is sure to become a family tradition for anyone who loves the Nutcracker or Celtic Dance!

We are looking forward to sharing this celebration of music and dance with you!

Please feel free to share this event with your friends and family & buy your tickets early to be sure to have a good seat!
