December 17, 2022 - December 18, 2022

About this Year’s Show

You’re invited to the Stahlbaum family’s annual Christmas Eve party! Experience the magic when a blizzard hits San Francisco, turning the party into a surprise winter wonderland.

You’ll waltz! You’ll march! You’ll pirouette! You’ll sing along! Through it all, you’ll enjoy music from The Nutcracker ballet, performed live by the 75-piece San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, the Official Band of San Francisco!

Part comedy musical, part dance-it-yourself ballet, and part symphonic concert, the Dance-Along Nutcracker features the holiday fun and tradition you’ve come to expect from this San Francisco favorite, live and in person for the first time since 2019.
