DECEMBER 10, 11 & 12, 2021


Springfield Ballet Company is excited to bring The Nutcracker to Springfield, IL for the 2021 holiday season.

Performances take place at UIS Performing Arts Center on Saturday, December 11, at 2 pm and 7 pm, and Sunday, December 12, at 2 pm, thanks to sponsorship by CEFCU.

As there are still some Covid-19 protocols in place for the state of Illinois and our local community, Springfield Ballet Company wants to remind patrons that this year's Nutcracker will look and feel a little different. However, the magic and beauty of dance will shine bright this holiday season. Please read COVID requirements for attending this performance.

Tickets to each performance are limited and all tickets are $35 for general admission seating. Parking is $5 and must be paid in cash at the time of arriving. We can't wait to see you! Purchase your ticket now.

Many thanks to UIS for its support of the sensory-friendly performance.
