THE NUTCRACKER Comes to Topeka This Week

For forty-five years, Ballet Midwest has been entertaining audiences with the magical Nutcracker Ballet set to the unforgettable score by Tchaikovsky. Join Clara at a Christmas Eve party where she receives a gift that will soon take her on a fantastic journey.

Feel the joy of a Christmas Eve party, marvel at the special effects and excitement as the Nutcracker battles the Mouse King, watch as the snow falls gently in the forest and marvel as the dancers entertain you in the Kingdom of Enchantment. You don't want to miss this Topeka holiday tradition!

Ticket prices for the 2022-23 season are $22 for adults, $20 for adults 55 and older, $14 for children & youth (under 18), or $60 for a family pack of 4 tickets (2 adults, 2 students).


The family pack of 4 tickets is available exclusively at the TPAC Box Office.



Review: THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG at Topeka Civic Theatre Photo
Topeka Civic Theatre, the beloved dinner theatre of Topeka, KS, undertook what is arguably the most difficult script of contemporary theatre: a script that necessitates precision timing, a crumbling set, and a laugh on every line. Director Shannon J. Reilly delivers beautifully.

Previews: THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG at Roxys Downtown Photo
I saw this show last night and it was brilliant! It's going to sell out quickly, so please get your tickets ASAP! My review is forthcoming. From the creative minds of the Mischief Theatre Company, this Tony winning farce portrays the doomed opening night of THE MURDER AT HAVERSHAM MANOR. The play won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award and was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Award.
