Best Nutcracker and Holiday Shows for Connecticut Kids
Showcasing everything from dancing teddy bears to a capella carolers, holiday musicals are some of our most beloved traditions this time of year. Starting in November and continuing through New Year's, there are family-friendly shows at community and city theaters from Bridgeport to Torrington. If you have a budding ballerina in your midst and Clara's story is on your must-see list, we have you covered for local performances of The Nutcracker, along with Holiday Inn!, Rudolph The Musical, and more. A certain lovable elf also takes the stage in Connecticut this Christmas season in The Littlest Christmas Tree.
Grab your tickets now, and be sure to check out our list of our favorite New England holiday traditions and The 15 Best Holiday and Christmas Events and Activities for Connecticut Kids for more family holiday fun. Merry merry—almost!
