Nutcracker Sponsors are much-beloved partners in making the Nutcracker experience equally as accessible as it is magical.
The opportunity to perform is essential to a young dancer’s training, and an equally valuable gift to the community. Since our founding as an arts non-profit in 1963, hundreds of Marin Ballet’s young dancers and thousands of North Bay residents have celebrated the holidays together as part of the iconic Nutcracker tradition.
In 1971, ours was the first ballet production to open Marin Center’s theater. Every December since, we return to bring the magic of the holidays to life for local families and friends of all ages and all walks of life. Nutcracker Sponsors are beloved partners in generously underwriting the Nutcracker experience for both dancers and audiences.
Nutcracker Sponsors include local businesses, individuals, groups, MB alumni, families, and friends.
Annual Sponsorship Gifts underwrite free Nutcracker tickets for social service agencies, schools, youth organizations, seniors, military families, and art programs from across the North Bay. In over a decade, Marin Ballet’s Nutcracker Surprise Program has provided more than 13,500 free tickets to communities in need through partnership with over 25 local agencies and organizations.
