For Kids

In addition to our performances, CIDE presents the Sugar Plum Fairy Dessert Party prior to each Nutcracker matinee performance at 12:30pm.

Begin your day with our Sugar Plum Fairy Dessert Party. Sit down and have a treat. While enjoying time with your group you will have the chance to make a festive craft. Then you can head over to our story time corner where you will be told the story of the Nutcracker to get you ready to watch the show. Finish off your experience by having your picture taken in Clara’s sleigh with Clara, the Nutcracker, and the Sugar Plum Fairy.


Your commemorative photo will be available for you to pick up during the show’s intermission. After the show you can complete your experience by getting the autographs and photos of your favorite dancers. Don’t forget your cameras and pens.


Tickets for this experience are available as a ticket add-on prior to our matinee performances. All individuals attending the dessert party must have a ticket, regardless of age. Please order tickets early as this event sells out very quickly.
