Treat Your Family to a Special Nutcracker Tea October 2, 2016 |

Treat your family to a special Nutcracker Tea on Saturday, December 10th, 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Aloft Orlando Downtown.

Make your family trip to see The Nutcracker even more exciting by also going to our special Nutcracker Tea at Aloft Orlando Downtown.  We’ve timed it so you can either go after the 11 a.m. family show or before the 3 p.m. matinee.

Enjoy a delicious assortment of sweets, sandwiches and cakes, play festive games, and watch the Sugar Plum Fairy demonstrate how she puts on her very own toe shoes and goes on pointe.

The afternoon tea includes the chance to have your family’s photograph taken alongside some of Nutcracker’s iconic figures including Clara, Nutcracker Prince and the Sugar Plum Fairy. 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 $35 per child and $45 per adult and can be purchased here.


Why not make it a special afternoon for your loved one? For an additional $30, you can purchase a personalized 12″ Nutcracker for your child. Delicately wrapped in Christmas paper and signed by Clara or the Nutcracker Prince, this special gift will await your child at his or her seat. Please place your order for a personalized Nutcracker when you purchase your tickets stating your child’s name as it should appear on the gift card.


To help raise funds and bring some extra holiday cheer, we’ve designed a fun way to purchase your gifts early. 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 donate to a good cause.


Able to help even more? We are offering a special package to sponsor a table of 10 for $1,500. In addition to enjoying the tea, sponsors will receive recognition on Nutcracker Tea print, media ads, website and social media advertising. Your guests will also receive a specially wrapped, personalized Nutcracker as our thanks.
