A Victorian Nutcracker is a retelling of the classic story of a young girl’s Christmas Eve dream, brought on by a curious gift of a nutcracker, in which she travels to the Sugar Plum Fairy’s Land of the Sweets. This version is unique to Portland and its history, as the first act takes place in the Victoria Mansion with characters pulled directly from Portland’s past.

Tickets available through PortTix.

There is a Land of the Sweets family-friendly event that is ticketed separately.  Join your favorite Nutcracker characters for a magical afternoon before the performance.  Guests are invited to enjoy tea sandwiches, sweet treats, and hot beverages.  All children must be accompanied by an adult with a paid ticket; a Land of the Sweets event ticket does not include admission to the Victorian Nutcracker performance.  Each child will receive a special souvenir and have the opportunity to pose for pictures with the Sugar Plum Fairy.  The event runs 1-1:30pm on both Saturday, December 16 and Sunday, December 17 at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center.  Tickets are $15 + $3 ticketing fee (all ages).
