Nooga Nutcracker

Chattanooga Dance Theatre produces a Nooga Nutcracker each December. With a delightful twist on the classic ballet, Nooga Nutcracker is set in present day Chattanooga. As the story goes, Clara after receiving her Nutcracker, goes to sleep and is awakened by a sassy mouse queen. With the help of the Chattanooga Mocs and Clara, the Nutcracker defeats the mouse queen and her posse. To thank Clara for her assistance, the Nutcracker prince takes Clara, out into Chattanooga for a magical night on the town. The performance involves many forms of dance including, ballet, modern dance, jazz dance, and acrobatics.

Nooga Nutcracker 2021 is returning to the stage! Performances will be held at Chattanooga Christian School's Fine Arts Theater on Saturday, December 18th at 2:30pm and 7:30pm. Tickets go on sale October 18th.
