Dance Wisconsin presents the holiday classic The Nutcracker.  The only local performance that includes: dancers, a live orchestra and magical vocals.  Dance Wisconsin's The Nutcracker includes over seventy dancers from Southern/Central Wisconsin, dancing along with the Dance Wisconsin Orchestra and the magical voals of the Monona Grove High School Singers making this a must see.  Join Clara as she receives a special Nutcracker Doll from Heir Drosselmeyer as she enjoys the party thrown by her family and the magic of Heir Drosselmeyer as he brings various toys to life.  Watch with excitement as she awakens from a dream to find the Nutcracker life size and battling The Mouse King with his troops.  After the Nutcracker's victory Clara is transported to a fantasy land where the Snow Queen and King perform with their snowflakes.  In Act II Clara is led through Candyland by a handsome prince where they are entertained by dancers from all over the world including a Sugar Plum Fairy.  Finally, rejoice with Clara as she returns home in a glorious sleigh.
