Please Plan Ahead for The Nutcracker

It is almost time for Ballet Idaho’s The Nutcracker, December 19-21, 2014 at the Morrison Center. The show is scheduled to last approximately two hours, including intermission.

The show will start promptly at the scheduled time! Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of management.

On performance dates, the Box Office is open 2 hours prior to show time. We find it best practice for our patrons to arrive at least 40 minutes prior to show time to pick up tickets.
