The Short & Suite Nutcracker | Bringing the Holiday Magic to Your Home


WICHITA, KS – Midwest Dance Mechanix is bringing the holiday magic of the Short and Suite Nutcracker performance to your home. Due to Covid restrictions, Midwest Dance Mechanix had to quickly pivot from their annual in-theatre performance to a virtual at-home film and experience. Despite the incredible challenges and timeline, owner Jana Owen and her staff were determined that THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

About the Show

For $25 per family and with a run time of approximately 60 minutes, experience the beauty, artistry and magic of this classic holiday ballet from the comfort of your own home. Additionally, enjoy special bonus “Behind the Curtain Suite Peeks”, cast & choreographer interviews, and more! Watch from any device or on your Smart TV via YouTube.

Featuring the breathtaking Snow Scene choreography of local ballet legend, Stan Rogers, as well as whimsical original choreography by Jana Owen, this Nutcracker is abbreviated in length but certainly not short on quality, professionalism, and pure holiday magic! 

Visit Midwest Dance Mechanix for all the details.
