The Bay Area Houston Ballet and Theater (BAHBT) performs the nutcracker every year at the University of Houston Clear Lake (UHCL). Instead of traveling to Houston, you can come down to the Bay Area where it is closer and enjoy the excitement and magic of the nutcracker. BAHBT works endlessly on preparing for 14 shows at UHCL and three shows in Baytown. Tickets are selling fast, so get your tickets at and see the amazing nutcracker. It will be during the first 3 weekends in December.  

First weekend- Dec 2-5 

Second weekend– Dec 10-12
