Nutcracker Tea June 14, 2017 |

Purchase Tickets Here


Treat your family to a special Nutcracker Tea on Saturday, December 23rd, 12:30 to 2:30pm, at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts’ Pugh Theater.

Make your family trip to see The Nutcracker even more exciting by also attending our special Nutcracker Tea. We’ve timed it so you can either go after the 11am Family Show or before the 3pm Family Show.


Enjoy a delicious assortment of sweet and savory holiday treats and interact with some of the dancers and characters in the performance. The afternoon tea includes the chance for $10 to have your family’s photograph taken alongside some of The Nutcracker’s iconic characters. A perfect gift for your loved ones.


This event will benefit Orlando Ballet School – Orlando’s internationally recognized and award-winning professional dance academy. Tickets cost $50 per child and $75 per adult and can be purchased here.


To help raise funds and bring some extra holiday cheer, we’ve designed a fun way to purchase last minute gifts. Local businesses have contributed a number of ‘secret treats’ valued at $50 or more that you can ‘purchase’ with a $50 donation. This is a great way to get your stocking fillers and support our ability to make dance accessible to every child.


Able to help even more? We are offering a special sponsor package for $1,500 (for a total of 8 guests). In addition to enjoying the tea, sponsors will receive recognition on Nutcracker Tea print and digital ads, website and social media. The children in your party will also receive a specially wrapped Nutcracker as our thanks (available for purchase to all guests but included in this package).
