Sometimes, going to see a traditional holiday performance is the best way to get into the spirit of the season, even when you're traveling across the Pacific Ocean all the way to tropical Hawaii. There are plenty of festivities on Maui, so it turns out that even when you swap out white snow for white sand, you can still get plenty of holiday cheer. This week, we'd like to highlight the two upcoming Nutcracker Sweets performances at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC).
The Maui Academy of Performing Arts (MAPA) will present this year's cherished classic, featuring no less than 150 of their talented students to dazzle you with their exceptional dance skills, vibrant costumes, and beautiful choreography. All of this will be accompanied by the timeless Tchaikovsky score that brought the story of the nutcracker into the world of holiday performance.
One of the reasons why we are suggesting the Nutcracker Sweets is because it has such boundless appeal, being family-friendly and loved by viewers of all ages. Whether you're on a Maui vacation with your family, or you're on a romantic getaway, or even just a trip with friends, this could be a lot of fun to attend. You can always reach out to us if you need a Maui transportation service to get you there and back.
Speaking of transportation, the performance will be held at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, which is in Kahului, just under an hour from most West Maui accommodations, and closer to a half hour if you're staying in South Maui. The performances will take place on December 10th at 7pm and December 11th at 3pm.
If you need more information on this charming performance, you can visit mauiarts.org. Tickets can be purchased at the website for $18, $24 and $30, depending on your seats. Kids ages 12 and under pay $18 for any seat. If you can't make it to this, you can always browse the MACC event calendar to see what kinds of performances, exhibits, concerts and other special events are going on during your vacation. If you need our assistance with your Maui transportation, we would be happy to collaborate with you on providing just the right service for your needs. Should you choose to reach out to us, you'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page. Mahalo!
