Why Barriskill's Nutcracker? 

Our Nutcracker is family/kid friendly with great production value. It is the perfect show someone looking for their child's first show, or tenth. There is something special about seeing other kids dancing in a large production. Our dancers work hard to put together a wonderful show full of Holiday magic! We hope you'll join us this year.
