Paine Art Center
November 22–January 6
This winter, see the Paine Art Center come to life when Nutcracker in the Castle fills the gallery with the sights and sounds of Christmas.
For seven weeks, the mansion will be brilliantly decorated with scenes from the Nutcracker ballet. Each of the rooms will reflect one of the ballet’s famous scenes, including the Party Scene, the Land of Sweets and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
For a truly memorable experience, visitors can arrange for a guided tour led by character actors. The tours feature live music and youth ballet performances.
Another great way to experience Nutcracker in the Castle is a candlelight tour, available on Wednesday and Friday evenings. Stroll through the mansion guided by the glow of 70 Christmas trees covered in holiday lights.
New for 2013 is the Sugar Plum Fairy’s Cupcake Factory. It’s the perfect way to cap off a very sweet holiday experience.
Nutcracker in the Castle runs from November 22 to January 7. Don’t miss this incredible holiday experience. Find complete tour information.
