NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville Ballet celebrates 10 years of Nashville’s Nutcracker early with Christmas in July, a special $5 off ticket discount with promo code XMASJULY. Nashville’s Nutcracker plays Dec. 2-23 at Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Jackson Hall.
In honor of its 10th year in Nashville, the production will debut additional characters and all-new magical elements. Nashville’s Nutcracker follows the classic adventure of young Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker with clever nods to Music City’s notable history, landmarks and characters.
To mark the occasion, the Nutcracker and Mouse King will make special appearances at various locations throughout the city during Christmas in July. The public is invited to TPAC (505 Deaderick Street Nashville, TN 37243) to meet the characters, purchase discounted Nashville’s Nutcracker tickets* on-site and save on ticketing fees (up to $10 per ticket), and buy Nutcracker and Mouse King dolls 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, July 13. The event coincides with Nashville’s weekly Street Food Thursdays event on Deaderick Street and 4th Avenue North, next to TPAC.
Other scheduled appearances include:
• Lightning 100’s Half Christmas Beer Fest at Marathon Music Works on Saturday, July 15 and
• National Dance Day at Nashville Ballet (3630 Redmon Street Nashville, TN 37209) on Saturday, July 29.
During their appearances, the Nutcracker and Mouse King will encourage children ages 7-11 years old to audition to perform in Nashville’s Nutcracker this December. This is the only opportunity the general public has to perform on stage with Nashville Ballet and the Nashville Symphony this season. Open auditions will be held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays Aug. 20, Aug. 27 and Sept. 10 at Nashville Ballet. No dance experience is required.
