Showcasing everything from dancing and singing snowmen to a capella carolers, the season brings holiday shows for Connecticut kids. These are some of our most beloved traditions this time of year. Starting in November and continuing through New Year's, there are family-friendly Christmas 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 Christmas in Connecticut, Holidaze, and more. A certain lovable snowman also takes the stage in Connecticut this Christmas season in Frosty the Snowman. And, if you're up for a day trip, The Boston Ballet Company's Nutcracker is well worth the ride!

Grab your tickets for these holiday spectaculars now. Be sure to check out our list of our Top holiday activities in New England for kids and Top Holiday Activities and Christmas Events for Connecticut Kids for more seasonal family fun. Merry merry—almost!
