The Nutcracker at the Hemmens Cultural Center

Looks like this event has already taken place.


45 Symphony Way, Elgin, IL 60120

Join us for the new and greatly anticipated 2021 production of The Nutcracker presented by M3 Dance.

This year's production will feature local dancers and actors sharing the stage with seasoned professionals to create an inclusive production full of surprises. Directed by Lauren Blane Bogren, this fresh twist of a classic story will truly be the must-see performance of the holiday season!

This year will also include a very special “Sugar Plum Tea” party, giving participants the chance to meet cast members, take pictures with characters and dine on sumptuous treats.

Two performances will be held on Saturday December 4th at 2pm and 7pm. Sunday's performance will take place at 2pm.
