Downey Theatre

8435 Firestone Blvd.

Downey, CA 90241

The Downey Theatre first opened its doors in 1970, built to house the success of the Downey Children's Theatre under the direction of John Hume.  While many of the old theatre programs shut down in 1978, the theatre continues to present the community with shows from the Downey Civic Light Opera, the Downey Symphony, and other local cultural and dance companies.

Under new management in 2011, the Downey Theatre began to once again host larger acts as a performing arts venue, presenting concerts and shows of nationally known artists.

Fun fact about Downey Theatre... In March 1971, astronauts Alan Shephard, Edgar Mitchell, and Stuart Roosa landed by helicopter in Downey and spoke at the theater. It was a busy place. Everything from beauty pageants to opera to marionettes have played there.

The Nutcracker Ballet Story

The Nutcracker Ballet features professional dancers for all principal roles, and dozens of Tustin Dance Centers most talented 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.
