Island Moving Co. invites you to join them for their wonderful holiday ballet A Newport Nutcracker at Rosecliff.

Follow their young protagonist throughout the mansion as she celebrates the holiday season with her family, battles with the Mouse King, dances with the Snow Queen and travels with her beloved Nutcracker to the magical Land of Sweets.

The first act of this unique performance is an experiential journey as guests are guided from room to room of the historic mansion. For the second act, guests will be seated at tables in the ballroom.

Tickets cost $79 or $99 for adults, $55 for children (6-10 years of age) and the performances are approximately 2 hours in length with a 15 minute intermission.
