Nutcracker is always a fun time of year for everyone because it brings us back to our childhood. One of my favorite things about Nutcracker is the matinee shows. Many kids come to see the show for the first time, and to hear them “ooo” and “ahh” gives you the most gratifying feeling! — Lexie

There will be several ooo’s and ahhh’s filling the house of the Broward Center on Sunday, January 5, when we hold our first-ever Nutty New Year’s Family Fest! Attendees will enjoy photo ops with Nutcracker characters, face-painting, arts & crafts by Young At Art Museum, and a candy-cane contest to meet The Sugar Plum Fairy backstage, and more! This fun starts at 11:30am and is FREE with paid admission to the performance!
