The Children’s Ballet of San Antonio is back with its annual production of The Nutcracker — this time with an immersive twist.

Combining multiple holiday traditions into one, this year’s performances at the Lila Cockrell Theatre will also feature a holiday market, “magical makeovers,” photos with Santa and the Nutcracker cast, among more family-friendly diversions.



To make Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet accessible even to the “tiniest attendees,” the performance has been condensed to an hour-and-a-half runtime.

The pre-show market will include dress-up items as well as hair stylists and makeup artists on hand to transform little ones into “regal royals for a glittering good time.”

The holiday market and photos with Santa will open one hour prior to each performance.

$40-$50, 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, Lila Cockrell Theatre, 200 E. Market St., (210) 462-7660, childrensballetofsanantonio.org.
