New and Classic Holiday Performances


It’s easy to tell that winter is coming to Cleveland—the Cavaliers open their season, surrounding suburbs prepare their fleet of snowplows and Great Lakes Christmas Ale begins to line grocery store walls. As the lake effect snow begins to fall, the city will be abuzz with anticipation and the airwaves will ring the melodies we all know by heart.

But holiday songs aren’t the only classics you should indulge in this winter. Cleveland’s theater scene is offering showings of old and new plays and musicals that are sure to get you in a joyous mood. While you're in town, book a night out to see one of these great holiday performances:

Playhouse Square

Cleveland Music Hall

  • Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker, Dec. 17

Stocker Arts Center

  • A Christmas Cabaret, Dec. 9-10
  • The Nutcracker, Dec. 16-18

Playhouse Square and other surrounding theaters typically see a massive turnout during the holidays, so purchase your tickets as early as possible so you don't get stranded without them. Tickets for most performances are currently on sale, so the best way to make sure your holiday outing is guaranteed is to plan ahead.
