About The Nutcracker

Central Indiana Dance Ensemble is thrilled to be holding our 21st annual Nutcracker performance in-person at The Paramount Theatre in Anderson, IN! The classic, Victorian-era story by E.T.A. Hoffman featuring Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, Dr. Drosselmeier and the Sugar Plum Fairy is a magical experience wrapped with exquisite costumes, grand sets, and captivating choreography. We are thrilled that we have the opportunity to perform at the Paramount and can't wait to welcome our families and audiences to this venue for our 2020 performance. The holiday season would not be complete without this timeless holiday favorite! The health and well-being of our community, artists, patrons, and staff is our top priority as we open the doors for live performances of The Nutcracker. Audiences for The Nutcracker will have greatly reduced capacity and adhere to the recommended distancing of six feet between seats. Additional measures include mandatory face masks, hand sanitizing stations and immediate seating to limit congregating in the lobby.
