The brilliant dancers of Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet bring Balanchine’s winter classic to life with larger-than-life sets and dazzling costumes set to the magical music of Tchaikovsky. As the clock strikes twelve, you’ll happen upon a battle between toy soldiers and mischievous mice as a blizzard of ballerinas reveal a wonderful world of confection.
