Nutcracker Backstage Tours

Backstage tours are an exciting way to get a behind-the-scenes look at all that goes into a large-scale production like Madison Ballet's Nutcracker. Enter at the stage door and you'll be escorted to the stage where you'll see the theater from the dancer's perspective!

Tours are provided by invitation only. All ages are welcome, but children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Tour Details

Backstage tours meet 1/2 hr before the performance at the Overture Command Center, located at 121 N Henry St (opposite the Federal courthouse).

Once inside the Command Center, please wait for a representative from Madison Ballet to escort you to the backstage area. Tours depart promptly, so please be sure your entire group is in attendance.

Each tour lasts approximately 20 minutes. If you have tickets at Will Call, please pick them up in advance of your tour. Groups proceed directly from the backstage area to their seats in the theater.

Space is limited, please RSVP to ensure your place.
