The Nutcracker Tea 2018 August 20, 2018 |

Attend This Event


About the Nutcracker Tea

Make your family’s trip to see Orlando Ballet’s The Nutcracker even more special by also attending the Nutcracker Tea on Saturday, December 15th at one of our two sitting times:


1:45 pm – 2:45 pm


12:15 pm to 1:15 pm



We’ve timed it so that you can attend the Tea either after the 11am  Family Show or before the 3pm Matinee performance. Enjoy a delicious assortment of sweet and savory holiday treats and interact with some of the dancers and characters from the performance. The afternoon tea includes the chance to have your family’s photo 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. 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  ‘secret treats’ valued at $50 or more that you can ‘purchase’ with a $50 donation during the Tea. This is a great way to get your stocking fillers and support our ability to make dance accessible to every child.

Available for purchase prior to the Tea is a Holly Adler Nutcracker with wrapping personalized by your choice of Clara or the Nutcracker Prince. Surprise a loved one with their very own Nutcracker doll, ordered uniquely for the Nutcracker Tea.

Event tickets are $50 per child and $75 per adult. (Event tickets do not include the cost of performance of The Nutcracker). To purchase your tickets for the performance of The Nutcracker, please visit


Sponsorship Opportunities

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