The Nutcracker is an Owensboro holiday tradition with sell-out performances since 1993. Based on the E.F. Hoffman tale, this captivating story of a little girl’s fantasy of beauty, magic and sugarplums come alive on the Cannon Hall stage.  Drosselmeyer is back with his pyro-magic tricks and a full set of beautiful backdrops.  Owensboro Dance Theatre’s original version is unlike any other, with dance forms including: ballet, jazz, tap, and hip hop, and features 6 professional dancers, over 200 community members, ODT Company and Apprentice Company.  Showcasing performances by seasoned professional dancers from Chicago, Denver and Atlanta, audiences will be thrilled by their expertise, grace and beauty.
