DESCRIPTION: Based on Lev Ivanov‘s original ballet “The Nutcracker”, PEANUTCRACKER is a shorter, 45-minute narrated version of the holiday classic that is designed for families with younger children (K-6th) to introduce them to the wonderful world of ballet. Choreographed and written by Rosine Bena, Artistic Director of the Sierra Nevada Ballet, this is a wonderful, traditional holiday show.

Each year’s performances feature professionals from out-of-state, and the Sierra Nevada Ballet professional company. Many  local children will perform live on stage for this ‘must-not-miss’ holiday event.

Start a holiday tradition with your young children by attending this performance with about a hundred other homeschoolers :-)

Please change your RSVP when your plans change, even up to the day of the activity, so the entire group doesn't delay, waiting for someone to arrive who will never come. :-( Email if you have difficulty changing or canceling your reservation



What to bring: Nothing but your fancy duds (if you want to dress up for the ballet :-) But that's not required.

What NOT to bring: No photos or video, please, until afterward, when the cast comes out front and you can take pics with them.

Directions: Downtown Reno, Pioneer Center for performing arts, inside the gold dome, next to the Sienna hotel.

Parking: Leave extra time to find metered parking, and pay, and walk to the front in time to check in. There will be a huge crowd - 1500 public school children.
