Holiday audiences in Reno will have their choice of three versions of The Nutcracker this holiday season, plus a spoof of the classic ballet with Buttcracker 5 - Pirate Booty.

Here is a rundown of where to see performances of The Nutcracker. Each of these shows is performed by a different dance company and, as you can see, they aren't competing on the same dates.

  • Grand Sierra Resort - December 7, 8 (Bay Pointe Ballet).
  • Pioneer Center - December 13, 14, 15 (A.V.A. Ballet Theatre).
  • John Ascuaga's Nugget - December 20, 21, 22 (Reno Dance Company).

Buttcracker 5 - Pirate Booty at Brüka Theatre is a holiday comedy and parody based on The Nutcracker ballet. For some laughs this holiday season, this could be the show for you. Playing on November 29 and 30, December 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, and 21. Sunday matinees on December 8 and 15.

Details (times, tickets, etc.) about each show are available from my "Christmas and Holiday Activities Guide for Reno and Sparks" article, along with many more holiday things to do.
