The Nutcracker
PYB - Behind the Scenes

Princeton Youth Ballet performs two full-length ballets each year, with a repertory of magical productions which include The Nutcracker, Cinderella, The Secret Garden, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Graduation Ball, and The Snow Queen. This season, PYB performs The Nutcracker on December 7th and 8th and The Secret Garden on May 2nd and 3rd.

In addition to presenting its own full-length ballets, PYB performs with other arts organizations in concerts, performances and collaborations throughout the region. In April 2019, PYB performed with Boheme Opera New Jersey’s production of Aida. PYB has also performed with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, most recently in their youth concert series, Dancing Around the World, which toured the state’s largest theaters. Other collaborations include performances with the West Windsor High School North Orchestra and the Youth Orchestra of Central Jersey.

RELAXED PERFORMANCES

PYB is proud to present relaxed, sensory-friendly performances in a welcoming atmosphere with moderated lighting and sound, alternative seating arrangements, and pre-performance materials for audience members. Learn more about our sensory friendly programming.
