The tale of a toy soldier coming to life has mesmerized audiences for decades and like in years past the annual Sugar Plum Tea Party is a prelude to the big event.

It's a Tea Party unlike any other, the social event stirs in tea, snacks, and of course a little dance. Attendees get a sneak peek of this year's Nutcracker. All the while, the story is being nerrated.

Tickets for the Sugar Plum Tea Party are $45 and can be purchased via the Ballet Yuma website. As for the Nutcracker the play is set for December 10th - 12th.
