As southern California’s largest and most spectacular production, critically acclaimed IPB’s endearing interpretation of The Nutcracker has become a holiday tradition for thousands of families with dazzling sets, beautiful costumes, and more than 80 dancers on stage. The annual holiday favorite tells the story of a young girl named Clara who receives a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve, and sets out on a wondrous journey to the Land of the Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets.
