11 years of going to McCaw Hall to see the Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Nutcracker has taught me a few things. The biggest thing I’ve learned is that The Nutcracker’s intermission is only 25 minutes long. How does one make the most of this precious time?
A few years ago, PNB started to offer this thing called, “The Nutcracker Suites” sponsored by Trophy Cupcakes. More information regarding the suite was always difficult for me to find on their website.
When you purchase your tickets to The Nutcracker, there will be a prompt for you to purchase the suite. The suite is only available during the evening shows and sells out quickly.
The cost is $25.00 per person. Print your suite tickets and take them with you to the ballet.
When the show breaks for intermission, head to the 4th floor and give them your ticket.
Champagne, hot chocolate, cupcakes and heavy appetizers are also available to you until the end of the 25 minute intermission.
