The Nutcracker Brunch & Show | Giveaway

When I think about the holidays, one of the first traditions that I think about is The Nutcracker. It is an amazing performance that is enjoyable year in and year out. It never grows old. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Madison Ballet’s beloved holiday classic right here in Madison – at Overture Hall. Children of all ages (and those young at heart) will love watching this performance. It’s a great tradition to start with your children and something they can look forward to each year.

To make it even more memorable – check out the Nutcracker Brunch on December 14th (10:30am-12:30)! Meet, greet, and eat with your favorite characters from The Nutcracker, enjoy a delicious brunch buffet—including Mommy Mimosas!—and enjoy live music in a room full of activities for the entire family. The brunch takes place at the Madison Concourse Hotel and is a magical holiday experience for the whole family! The proceeds from the event support Madison Ballet’s Movement in Your World, a creative dance program provided free of charge to students in Madison’s Head Start classrooms.




  • KarlyJo Photography will be taking photos with your favorite characters from The Nutcracker
  • Monroe Street Arts Center will host a craft table of Nutcracker activities
  • UROn Salon will be providing Sugarplum Fairy Nail Polishing and Land of Sweets lip polishing
  • Fresco Restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine will be baking up holiday house cookies to decorate
  • Gigi’s Cupcakes will treat guests to Nutcracker themed mini-cupcakes
