Tickets Now on Sale: Cody Nutcracker Ballet 26th Annual Year

Join us for Rocky Mountain Dance Theatre's 26th Annual full-length production of The Nutcracker Ballet set to Tchaikovsky's famous score. Choreography, sets, and lighting are all original, led by professionals in their field. Along with a large cast of performers from our local community and surrounding areas RMDT is proud to announce the return of Randy Pacheco for his 5th year as guest artist. Soloists with Ballet Arizona, Randy will be performing the role of Cavalier, dancing the Grand Pas with RMDT/RMSA’s very own Alumni Jessica McNeil as Sugar Plum Fairy.

In 2022, RMDT completed the dream of the new set designed by Casey Kearns that has been in the works for the past 5 years. The vision of “Setting the Stage” for the next 25 year’s of Cody’s very own Nutcracker ballet is complete but campaign donations are still needed to fund this dream and greatly appreciated.

RMDT's production of the Nutcracker brings the classic Nutcracker tale to life. It is a magical night about an enchanted Christmas Party where Clara is the guest of honor. After the party, the audience is witness to Clara's vivid dreams about her Nutcracker who comes to her rescue and then brings her to a magical land of dancing snowflakes and sugar treats.

RMDT is a local nonprofit performing arts organization that produces this annual performance which has become a cherished holiday tradition for so many in the surrounding area. Every year their production of The Nutcracker offers members of the community, regardless of dance instruction, an opportunity to participate in and contribute to a classical theatre experience. Open Auditions are held every spring and casting is announced during the summer. Weekly rehearsals begin in September where every role learns specific steps, formations, and staging choreographed to Tchaikovsky’s famous score.
Participating in the The Nutcracker provides experience and interaction with peers as well as professionals in dance and theatre, such as lighting and stage designers, and guest artists from prestigious dance companies across the country. The RMDT Nutcracker is the only performance in the area in which this type of exposure to the arts is afforded to our youth. The cast and crew work hard to ensure that The Nutcracker is of professional grade and entertaining for all to enjoy.
