Toledo Ballet’s 80th Nutcracker goes Virtual

Always wanted to see the Nutcracker but couldn’t afford to take the entire fam? You’re in luck! The longest running annual production of The Nutcracker in the nation, TOLEDO BALLET’S NUTCRACKER  is going ALL virtual this year!  Due to Ohio Governor Mike Dewine’s recommendations and Lucas County’s stay-at-home advisory related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic you can watch the Toledo Ballet’s Nutcracker in your PJs from the comfort of your own home, how cool is that? And we’re personally loving the fact that our elderly loved ones and those family and friends with compromised immune systems and those who live out of town can watch our daughter perform! (Keep an eye out for a Big Angel in Saturday’s performance- beginning of Act II after the baby angels 😉 ) Details for online viewing are below.
