The Nutcracker Gala



Catered Dinner • Wine & Beer • Silent Auction • Entertainment • Casino Night

Don't miss this extraordinary event! Enjoy an evening with old friends and new, sharing mouth-watering food and refreshments, while enjoying talented musicians playing holiday classics - all set in the beautiful residence of our gracious hosts, the Walthall's.  

Funds raised at the Gala are critical to preserving our nonprofit performing arts organization, Dance! To Your Heart's Delight (DTYHD). From the holiday tradition of its affordably priced, world-class Nutcracker and to the tickets we donate to the underserved and assistance we offer to dancers whose families have financial need, to the many community performances we bring to residents and businesses in the greater Tustin Area, DTYHD plays a significant role in providing affordable access to the arts to thousands in our community every year.

This very special evening includes recognition of the extraordinary efforts of several key volunteers, donors and sponsors who help make our production possible. We look forward to seeing you at our Nutcracker Gala!
