A quintessential DC holiday tradition, The Nutcracker Tea Party is filled with family fun and seasonal merriment.

Sunday, December 4, 3PM at The Waldorf Astoria

Guests will be transported to an enchanting winter wonderland where they will indulge in delicious sandwiches and teas and pose for photos with iconic Nutcracker characters from the production. The Nutcracker Tea Party also includes a ticket to the 1 pm matinee performance at Warner Theatre as well as an elegant social with tea sandwiches and scones. Children will delight in the “Land of Sweets” featuring a candy bar and other special treats.

Proceeds from The Nutcracker Tea Party support the education and community engagement programs of The Washington School of Ballet, the premier ballet school in the nation’s capital.

The Washington Ballet dedicates more than $1.4 million annually to outreach and education programs. Funds raised from the event allow TWSB to award over $300,000 annually in merit and need-based scholarships.
