This December, Ballet Wichita will transport Wichita into a magical world of dancing dolls, mischievous mice and sparkling snowflakes with the time-honored classic, and the Holiday Event of the Season, the Nutcracker Ballet.
Choreographed and directed by Ballet Wichita’s Artistic Director, David Justin, the 48th annual production promises a return to a traditional but lavish fairy-tale that has made the Nutcracker one of the season’s most treasured events. With gorgeous costumes and scenery by celebrated Wichita Set Designer, Michael Downs, this is the year to join us as we journey through the Kingdom of Sweets and create lasting Nutcracker memories.
All performances are danced live to Tchaikovsky’s lyrical and dramatic score, under the direction of Guest Conductor, Maestro Steven Byess, and feature a cast of over 130 local dancers.

Thanks to the generous support of Sponsors and Donors, Ballet Wichita has been able to keep out ticket prices the same this year, despite the additional costs to perform and produce new work. We look forward to working with our new partners at Select A Seat this year, they have a very user friendly online system for purchasing tickets. A note to our patrons: If you purchase tickets online, expect to pay higher processing fees, this is an industry standard for the convenience.
