The Nutcracker presented by The Conservatory returns to the Arend Arts Center stage December 2nd and 3rd for the 10th annual production of the heartwarming classic set to the iconic Tchaikovsky score. Described as a “community treasure,” The Nutcracker is Northwest Arkansas’ most beloved holiday tradition. This year’s production features a community cast of 171 dance students and adult character artists in addition to the professional Guest Artists of NWA Ballet Theatre and a visiting guest artist from Dance Kaleidescope.

Join The Conservatory for an enchanted evening with Clara as she receives her most treasured Christmas gift, a Nutcracker doll. Follow along as the Nutcracker comes to life in a dream and saves Clara from the grip of the evil Rat Queen and her mice minions with the help of an infantry of toy soldiers. Continue with Clara and the Nutcracker prince as they journey through the wintry Snow Forest and into the kingdom of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her magical Land of Sweets.

We will have 3 shows this year:
Friday December 2nd at 7PM
Saturday December 3rd at 1PM & 7PM
