Plummer Auditorium

Dance! To Your Heart’s Delight is pleased to be performing its 16th annual Nutcracker Ballet at historic Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton again this year.

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.

The Nutcracker Ballet Story

Tustin Dance Center presents its 14th annual production of The Nutcracker Ballet featuring dozens of dancers of all ages.

In this enchanting ballet, featuring the famous score by Tchaikovsky, a young girl has a very special Christmas. At a fun-filled family party with dancing, magic and dolls that come to life, Clara receives a special gift: a Nutcracker. That night she dreams of an epic battle between mice and toys, and a magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets, where Clara dances with her Prince and meets the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy.
