Earlier this week I was standing in an exhibit at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis with a group of preschool parents and we were chatting about the Nutcracker. There was a lot of conversation about who had the best Nutcracker performance in Indy, who has the most preschool friendly performance of the Nutcracker and who offered fun little extras to get kids excited. Several parents mentioned the Butler Ballet performance as their top pick.

Indy with Kids has partnered with the Butler Arts Center to share holiday programming with our readers.

The Nutcracker Ballet Performance in Indianapolis

In addition to being in one of the easiest locations to park and walk in with kids, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, performed by Butler Ballet brings in the talents of the Butler Symphony Orchestra and the Indianapolis Children’s Choir. There’s spectacular dancing, beautiful costumes, glorious scenery, and pyrotechnical magic that all bring the story to life for young and old.

The Butler Ballet presentation of The Nutcracker will be on stage December 5th – 8th with performances in the evening and the afternoon. As a parent of young children, I love the option to take my kids to a show earlier in the day so they can be fully alert and enjoy it even more, while still settling into their beds at a decent hour. On the other hand, I appreciate the later evening shows so I can enjoy a date night with my husband. Just add dinner and it’s a completely wonderful winter date.

Grab your tickets now for the Butler Ballet Nutcracker performance.
