This December the City of Davis is pleased to once again present the Davis Children’s Nutcracker. This long-time Davis tradition takes you through the exciting story of a young girl called Clara, who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a fierce battle against a Mouse King. As the clock strikes midnight strange things begin to happen. Clara begins shrinking as her beautiful Christmas tree grows high above her. The toys around the tree come to life while the room fills with an army of mice, led by the fierce Mouse King.
The City of Davis invites your child to participate in the annual production. This opportunity is open to all children ages 6 to 12 years old. The City of Davis will be casting 250 children for the 2012 production. Rehearsals begin November 26 and the performances take place December 12 through 16 at the Veterans' Memorial Theatre.
