The Nutcracker ballet is the quintessential holiday event for families, and luckily Orlando has several productions to choose from. Families may prefer to attend the classic version of The Nutcracker, performed by professionally trained dancers from Orlando Ballet and Central Florida Ballet, or something a bit more relaxed and modern, like Clare and the Chocolate Nutcracker and Nutty Nutcracker

Besides The Nutcracker, there are many holiday shows for every age group and interest. As theaters and venues open doors for holiday shows and events, lucky Orlando residents and tourists have their pick in choosing some of the best holiday shows around.
