Seeing The Nutcracker ballet and other holiday shows during this time of year brings families together and gets everyone in a festive spirit

Atlanta offers plenty of holiday shows and options for The Nutcracker, including plenty of cool twists on the story like Hip Hop Nutcracker at the Fox and Once Upon a Holiday at Avalon. Some performances are so kid-friendly (especially the ones with puppets) that even the wiggliest of children are mesmerized! Take a look at our comprehensive list of The Nutcracker performances and choose which one (or many) will add theatrical magic to your family this holiday season.
