Nutcracker in Savannah

“Nutcracker in Savannah” is a holiday favorite with a distinctly Savannah flair. Shopping on Broughton Street and ice cream from Leopold’s enhances the magic and fun of this holiday classic.

This special story about a little girl, rebellious rats, a handsome prince, and the spectacular Sugar Plum Fairy is danced to Tchaikovsky’s famous score, with the evening performance accompanied by a live orchestra under the baton of Peter Shannon.
