SEATTLE, WA — For many families, the holiday season begins the day after Thanksgiving, not
with Black Friday madness, but rather when the Stowell/Sendak Nutcracker – the Northwest’s
most cherished holiday tradition – returns once again to light up Seattle Center’s Marion Oliver
McCaw Hall. The brilliant result of close collaboration between choreographer Kent Stowell and
author/illustrator Maurice Sendak, Pacific Northwest Ballet’s acclaimed Nutcracker runs for 36
performances November 25 thru December 27. Tickets may be purchased by calling the PNB Box
Office at 206.441.2424, online at PNB.org, or in person at the PNB Box Office at 301 Mercer St.
