The Virtual Nutcracker Tea Party

Please join International Ballet for the 2020 Nutcracker Tea Party! Although it'll look a bit different this year due to COVID precautions, they are thinking outside the box - and the show will go on! Your ticket will be in the form of a GIFT BOX packed with all the goodies you'll need to be a guest and celebrate with them virtually! These will be available for drive-thru pick-up on Saturday, December 19, 2020 with the option to stop for a professional picture with the Dew Drop fairy. [They ALSO welcome out-of-town guests to join them for this special occasion! Please select the postage option at checkout for deliveries outside the Greenville/Spartanburg area.]


These will make perfect gifts to open right before Christmas. Inside, you'll find a dainty cup and saucer, a box of "Nutcracker Sweet Black Holiday Tea" bags for adults, hot chocolate for children, honey straws, a crystallized sugar stick, a decorated Nutcracker cookie, a Nutcracker cocktail napkin, Christmas place setting décor, and their special keepsake IB Nutcracker ornament. You can choose from a box for grown-ups with lip balm, a box for little girls with a ballet hair-bow, or a box for boys with a bendable toy soldier. Children’s boxes will also include a Nutcracker sticker book.


In addition, each box will include one BINGO game and stamper with an exclusive link & password to our VIRTUAL NUTCRACKER TEA PARTY at 1:30pm ET on Sunday, December 20, 2020. Spread your tablecloth and dress up for tea-time! They’ll welcome you live via Zoom, play BINGO for a dozen gift cards, enjoy their traditional Nutcracker story read-aloud, and watch a special performance of beloved Nutcracker excerpts by IB Company dancers via the choreography of Artistic Director Vlada Kysselova!


This special event is brought to you by Presenting Sponsor of the 2020 Nutcracker Tea: Bannister, Wyatt, & Stalvey, Attorneys at Law. By buying these boxes, you'll also be supporting other local businesses with products they’ve included: home-made cookies from Cakes by Shannon, hair-bows by Blaire Boutique, and lip balm by The Herb Garden. Generous BINGO prizes are sponsored by Amber Dennard. Thank you for supporting International Ballet!
