“A sweet nut to crack.” - Chico Enterprise-Record

Celebrating 35 seasons, Chico Community Ballet embarks on the creation of a brand-new and unique concept: a “very Chico Nutcracker.” Inspired by Dr. Oscar Stansbury and their daughter Angeline, this soaring story captures the awe and expectation of the night before Christmas when a mysterious gift sparks a wondrous adventure. As the colossal Christmas tree shoots skyward and snowflakes blanket the stage, the ballet magically transports Angeline and the audience to an enchanted land brimming with visitors from faraway lands, waltzing almond blossoms, and fluttering bumble bees—a holiday treat not to be missed.
