The holiday season is finally upon us, bringing the Boston Ballet Company's The Nutcracker and more holiday shows for kids to Boston. The Nutcracker is a timeless treat that takes you on an enchanting journey through a winter wonderland and beyond. From the Boston Ballet classic to the high-energy adaptation of the Urban Nutcracker's diverse, upbeat choreography, there are dancers performing all around Boston.

Want to keep things merry and bright for your family all season long? Tchaikovsky's beloved confection is hardly the only holiday-themed stage performance. Holiday shows are delighting kids across Boston and New England, this month and next. Cirque du Soleil brings the spectacular Twas the Night Before... to town, complete with magical acrobatics. At Boston's 2022 holiday shows, families can carol with the Boston Pops and delight in Scrooge's journey in A Christmas Carol. Tickets will sell out for these must-see performances faster than cookies go on Christmas Eve! We advise booking sooner than later.
