A festive tea . . .

a magical ballet . . .

and an amazing time!


The Annual Nutcracker Tea Party is a family-friendly event perfect for the child in all of us! Enjoy a one-hour version of the holiday classic, The Nutcracker Ballet, performed by Crescendo Conservatory, along with a delightful tea party.

Your little princess will enjoy dressing up with mom and grandma and feeling like she has "gone to the ball." Nutcracker Tea Party is a very special experience for all - just ask the thousands who have enjoyed the Nutcracker Tea Party since 2006.

The Nutcracker Tea Party is especially suited for children ages 3-10 who are not quite ready to enjoy a 2-hour performance of the ballet. Our ballet is shortened to less than 1 hour but includes beautiful costumes and all your favorite scenes.

And the tea party - with traditional tea-party fare served - is so much fun! Everyone will love meeting the costumed dancers as they visit each table. And there's the Nutcracker Boutique featuring an extensive collection of unique nutcrackers for your collection, tiaras, and ornaments.

Nutcracker Tea Party is a fundraising event for Friends of Overland Park Arts. Proceeds benefit arts education in low-income schools as well as city-sponsored arts and cultural activities and art installations in Overland Park.

Support your community, have a fabulous time with that special child in your life, and create new memories at the Nutcracker Tea Party.
