Nutcracker in the Castle

November 16–January 7

This holiday season, see the Nutcracker story come to life at Nutcracker in the Castle at the Paine Art Center. Thousands of visitors will come to Oshkosh to see the magnificently decorated rooms of the Paine mansion transformed into a holiday wonderland.

In each of the mansion’s rooms, scenes from the Nutcracker ballet are reinterpreted through elaborate decorations. Scenes include the Nutcracker’s opening party scene, the dance of the sugar plum fairies and the land of sweets. Like the ballet, “Nutcracker in the Castle” presents a visual spectacle.

On the guided tour option, actors lead visitors through the ornate rooms and hallways of the home. Live music fills the mansion, thrilling visitors with a sense of warmth and opulence. Youth ballet performers are also featured, completing the Nutcracker story through dance.

At several points during the run of “Nutcracker in the Castle,” special candlelight tours will be offered. A trip through the “castle” lit by decorated Christmas trees is an unforgettable experience.

“Nutcracker in the Castle” begins November 16 and runs through January 7. Find complete information, including information on self-guided tours, candlelight tours and guided tours.

    The Nutcracker at the Castle is definitely something my daughter and I want to see this year! When will tickets go on sale? Do they sell out fast?

    Thank you!

      Hi, Kristy. Visit ThePaine.org at the beginning of October for Nutcracker in the Castle Guided Tour tickets. Guided Tours are limited and do sell-out. You do not need a reservation for self-guided or candlelight tours. Typically, Guide Tour tickets do not start to sell out until November, but the sooner you can make your reservation, the better chance you have of getting the dates and times you want. We will see you and your daughter soon! 🙂
