The Nutcracker Ballet



Join us this holiday season as the lights fade, the music swells, snowflakes whirl, flowers waltz, and a young girl dreams about a magical sweet-filled world in the charming and magical Nutcracker Ballet.

Dance! To Your Heart’s Delight!1 is proud to present its 14th annual Nutcracker Ballet production this year at the historic Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton in three December performances.

Our cast of over 60 performers and their amazing skill will delight you. Set to Tchaikovsky's timeless score, on a full size stage with professional costumes and theatrical backdrops, the Nutcracker Ballet tells the story of a girl named Clara whose adventure begins when she is given a toy Nutcracker as a Christmas gift from her Uncle Drosselmeyer during the family festive Christmas Eve party.  That night she dreams of a grand adventure that begins with her Nutcracker becoming a handsome prince, continues with an epic battle between mice and toys, and comes to a climax with a magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Plummer Auditorium

201 E. Chapman Ave.

Fullerton, CA  92832

Designed by architect Carlton M. Winslow and constructed for $295,500 in 1930, the Plummer Auditorium is an outstanding example of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture with Italian Renaissance design elements. Since its construction the facility has been a center of entertainment for the community. Music organizations from both the high school and junior college have performed for social and civic groups. Not only do students gain their first experiences in drama, dance, and music there, the auditorium is used to stage important theatrical productions and community-oriented cultural programs. Throughout its 70-year history the auditorium has served the community well, giving Fullerton its fine reputation as a cultural and educational center for north Orange County.

The large auditorium, which seats over 1,300 people, features an elaborate ceiling of painted and decorated rough-hewn beams, the original wrought iron chandeliers, arched side isles with composite capitals, and other classical ornamentation. In 1995, the building was fully rehabilitated and improved to meet seismic safety requirements. Additionally, the grand Wurlitzer Organ, original to the building, was restored and is in use today.
