Dramatic Truth Ballet Theatre presents…

The Mystery Of Christmas

The Nutcracker that tells the true story of Christmas!

A Christian re-write of Tchaikovsky’s original Nutcracker.  With breathtaking sets and beautiful costumes, the Holy Spirit (Sugar Plum Fairy) takes Clara back to Bethlehem to witness the birth of Christ, the heavenly host rejoicing, and the Nations of the world presenting their dances before the King of Kings. The plan of salvation thru the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is dramatically portrayed through the closing grand pas de deux.

New this year! We’ve added the nations of Ireland and Israel.
