Crackling fires, hot chocolate, magnificent horses, and the magic and mystery of the Theatre…

This winter, get ready for a spectacular retelling of Tchaikovsky’s Holiday Classic: The Nutcracker, as re-imagined for the outdoors by Director Manon Beaudoin. Featuring a cast of five actors, Tchaikovsky’s iconic score, and the beauty of the winter landscape. Magical, fantastical, and transformative, The Nutcracker is an ode to growing up, set against the backdrop of the wonder and magic of the holidays. 

The Winter Sleigh Ride Show is a professionally produced theatre production staged in up to five locations, outdoors, on our 80-acre venue. The audience is transported from scene to scene by horse-drawn sleigh (or wagon, depending on the snow). A winter tradition for thousands of families, the Winter Sleigh Ride show is a one-of-a-kind experience, incorporating the adventure and beauty of a night-time horse-drawn sleigh ride, the spectacle of professionally executed theatre design, and the high-calibre performances for which this company has become known.

The Winter Sleigh Ride Show is performed outdoors, please dress accordingly, and bring blankets, hotshots, and or/anything else that will keep you and your family warm.
