This winter, Delaware Dance Company will once again perform its “Nutcracker” in Newark, on the University of Delaware campus. A Friday evening performance has been added to accommodate a greater audience! On December 11, 12 & 13, 2015, DDC’s unique version of the nation’s most popular ballet will be performed at Mitchell Hall. The opening performance will be on Friday, 12/11, at 7:00p. On Saturday, 12/12 performances will be held at 2:00pm and 7:00pm and Sunday, 12/13, the final matinee at 2:00pm. For another year, this intimate theatre will come alive with DDC’s beautiful and engaging production.

Tickets are on-sale from the DDC studios and by request through the form below. Prices are $30 for main floor, $25 for central balcony and $15 for side balcony, obstructed view, seats. Tickets for children 10 years and younger and seniors 65 yrs and older are available for $5 off the listed prices. Last year, tickets sold quickly and some performances were sold out several days before the performances. The Friday evening performance has been added to accommodate more guests in the seats of their choice.

Join us for our 32nd annual production of this time honored family favorite, DDC’s “The Nutcracker!”
