Tickets cost $12 for adults, $10 for children, and $8 to livestream the event. Please note that the show will only be livestreamed during the 4 p.m. showtime. In-person tickets will be sold in socially-distanced pods. Livestream tickets are subject to one viewing device per ticket. Tickets can be purchased at grunincenter.org.

“The Nutcracker” tells the story of a young girl, Clara, on the brink of womanhood whose dreams are both childlike and tinged with romance. She is the favorite godchild of Herr Drosselmeyer, a mysterious clockmaker, who helps to transport Clara and her Nutcracker Prince to a special realm.

Please note that the Grunin Center’s policy for all family shows is that all attendees, regardless of age, require a ticket. For more information about this event, email [email protected] or call 732-255-0500.
