There are many productions of ‘The Nutcracker’ staged around the Puget Sound region each year, but the one by Emerald Ballet Theatre in Northshore, which features a combination of its own students and guest dancers from professional companies, is the one readers rave about.

Here’s your chance to get a closer look at the world of ballet and live theatre! For the seventh consecutive year, EBT invites non-profit children’s groups and veterans to attend our dress rehearsal/informance on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets are general admission and seating begins at 9:45 a.m. Please note that because this is a dress rehearsal, some stops/repeats should be expected. Attendees can view the orchestra up close, and meet dancers and take photographs after the show.  

Tickets are $15 each for 8-20 tickets, and $12 each for 21+ tickets. Minimum order for children’s groups is 8 tickets. Tickets are sold through EBT, not NPAC. Please mail in the order form below, or email for more information. 

Thank you so much for opening the dress rehearsal to non-profits in the area. It was absolutely wonderful and our community kids LOVED it! We were so proud of them and look forward to bringing them again next year.

There are things that you have heard about all your life, but have never experienced. Thank you Emerald Ballet Theatre for The Nutcracker and the donated tickets. My party of four had a wonderful time. I wasn’t the only one seeing and hearing it for the first time, as we took a friend’s five year old daughter to her first time as well. Merry Christmas!

Thank you Emerald Ballet Theatre and for providing tickets to The Nutcracker. My little girl is currently taking ballet classes and she was amazed by the all the great performers. Thanks to your generosity we were able to attend a ballet for the first time as a family, a tradition that I hope we can continue. Thank you for truly supporting Veterans and ... not just talking about it.
