If you have never been to Paine Art Museum and Gardens, or if you have but never this time of year, now is the time to come and enjoy. From November 16th-January 7th, the Nutcracker story unfolds in the Paine “castle”
A Guided Tour of Nutcracker in the Castle brings the characters and scenes of the fairytale to life. The tour begins with a festive party in the “Ballroom” and live performances by a string quartet. Guests enjoy punch and cookies while Godfather Drosselmeyer tells the story of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince.
Afterwards, he leads guests through the elaborately decorated rooms of the mansion. The story culminates in the “Lands of Afar” where youth dancers from Valley Academy for the Arts perform selections from the Nutcracker ballet. Guests then tour the second-floor rooms, which are fancifully decorated as Clara’s family home and Drosselmeyer’s workshop.
The number of Guided Tours is limited, and in previous years nearly all of the tours have sold out in advance. Get your tickets soon to ensure you get your first choice of tour dates and times.
During evening candlelight tours, the magical settings shimmer in the glow of more than seventy Christmas trees.
Special actor-guided tours with live music and youth ballet performances further bring the fantasy to life. Making special appearances, the Sugar Plum Fairy serves cupcakes and hot cocoa in an enchanting café!
