The Nutcracker Takes Over Fletcher Jones Mercedes-Benz

If you are like many, then the performance of the Nutcracker brings back warm holiday memories of dressing up with friends and family for an outing to the theatre.

With epic battle scenes and intense music to intricately designed costumes and a romantic prince and princess story, this classical Christmas fairy tale is truly something the entire family can enjoy. Children will leave the theatre twirling and begging for ballet lessons and reenacting the Nutcracker and Mouse king duel with their play swords. Adults will be reminiscing about what it was like to be a child, wishing they could fall asleep and enter the Land of Snow just like Clara and the Nutcracker did that one Christmas Eve.

Enter a Magical World

If you are looking to enter into a magical world this holiday season then you absolutely must get tickets to the Festival Ballet Theatre (OC’s very own professional ballet company) and watch their rendition of The Nutcracker. The group kicked off its season’s performance of the Nutcracker on December 10th at The Barclay Theatre in Irvine, CA and performances will continue on until December 24th.

Cheese and Greet

Before the Festival Ballet Theatre dancers entered the stage, associates from the Fletcher Jones Management company in Newport Beach were lucky enough to meet some of the marvelous characters for a photo-shoot that will never be forgotten, much like the Nutcracker’s story itself.

Making the Mercedes-Benz SLC’s look like toy cars, these larger than life characters were better than we remembered them. Immersed into the world of these mischievous characters, we saw the Nutcracker transform from toy to prince before our very eyes, and even caught some toys trying to drive off with our precious Christmas presents! We learned that the Mouse King is really just a misunderstood giant; Clara was as delightful as they come, and the flowers were oh so sweet.
