Look. Feel. Reminisce.

Newark’s oldest dance company, Delaware Dance Company, is bringing its Nutcracker ballet back to Newark!  On December 13 and 14, 2014, DDC’s unique version of the nation’s most popular ballet will be performed at Mitchell Hall on the University of Delaware campus.  Saturday, 12/13 at 2:00pm and 7:00pm and Sunday, 12/14 at 2:00pm, this intimate theatre will come alive with DDC’s beautiful and engaging production.

Look. Feel. Reminisce.Tickets will go on-sale on October 13, 2014 from the DDC studios or you may submit a ticket request below.  Prices are $25 for main floor, $20 for central balcony and $15 for side balcony, obstructed view, seats.  Tickets for children 10 yrs and younger and seniors 65 yrs and older are available for $5 off the listed prices.

Mitchell Hall is a smaller theatre than Dickenson High School where the performance has been produced for many years.  As a result, performances are expected to sell out and early purchase of tickets is strongly suggested.

Join us for our 31st annual production of this time honored family favorite, DDC’s The Nutcracker!

Look. Feel. Reminisce.
