Afternoon of Enchantment

Kick off The Nutcracker season in Pittsburgh on Sunday, Nov. 21!

Spend your pre-Thanksgiving Sunday at PBT Studios for an enchanting afternoon filled with class samplings, performance excerpts, take-home crafts, photo opportunities and more!

Over the course of the afternoon, you and your family can celebrate the season as children learn ballet basics, listen to the famed story, experience the magic of PBT School Pre-Professionals dancing Act II of The Nutcracker and conclude the day with a craft packet to complete at home. In addition to these activities, families can be on the lookout for appearances from the Sugar Plum Fairy and stop by our photo booth to capture memories in front of a festive backdrop.

We welcome all audiences to this afternoon, which includes activities and performances suited for guests with sensory sensitivities and individualized needs. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve your admission for this exciting event today!

Each session option has a limited capacity.
