FORT WAYNE’S FAVORITE HOLIDAY CLASSIC! A story of a young girl, a Nutcracker prince, and the evil Mouse King bring the whole family together to experience holiday magic and a fantastic journey through the Kingdom of Sweets. It’s more than a family tradition — it’s a holiday feast for the eyes and ears!
