Nutcracker on the Indian River


We are thrilled to bring our critically acclaimed production back to the stage this season! After a two year absence the full theatrical production returns! Nutcracker on the Indian River retains all the whimsy and magic of the original ballet, but moves the action to the year Vero was founded (1919). By taking the ballet’s heroine, Marie, on a holiday journey from New York to Florida, Fifth Avenue Mansions, Grand Central Station, and rail cars become settings. Instead of a second act featuring candy characters, Marie dreams of the shores of the Indian River Lagoon, and is entertained by all manner of local flora and fauna. From land crabs to manatees and river otters to bougainvillea, our production has become an instant classic which takes all the magic of the stage and uses that magic to both entertain and inspire.

We are thrilled to offer in person and film access to this production!
