Breakfast with the Sugar Plum Fairy and The Nutcracker Tea Party takes place each December. In 2018, the event was held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Attendees enjoyed tea service, hands-on activities, and had the opportunity to pose for photographs with the Sugar Plum Fairy. All guests attended the 1PM matinee performance of TWB’sThe Nutcracker at the Warner Theatre.

2018 Event Chairs: Kris McBrady and Allison Riepe

Both events are benefits for The Washington Ballet education and community engagement programs and raise critical funds to provide the highest quality dance performance and training throughout our community.
