My First Nutcracker event for young children
Introduce a young child to Balletmet the Nutcracker! There is a special performance for the little fans on December 26 at 11 a.m. at Ohio Theatre. My First Nutcracker is a one-hour performance suitable for kids ages 4 and under. The show features all the magic of the full performance but with a shortened storyline. The lights are dimmed, and the mice look more friendly. Need to get up and move? Head to our children’s area in the lobby for some fun crafts. Tickets are $15.
Disclosure: Columbus on the Cheap received 4 tickets to The Nutcracker in exchange for writing about the performance and hosting this giveaway.
