December 16-17, 2023

The spirit of the holidays is brought to life with beautiful dancing, magnificent scenery and imaginative costumes. Come to the Paramount Theatre and cheer on Marie and her soldiers as she rescues the Nutcracker Prince from the evil Rat King and then soar with our dancing snowflakes to the Land of Sweets where luscious treats await.

The Oakland Symphony along with the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir bring Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score to life. Graham Lustig’s The Nutcracker will be the highlight of your holiday season!
