"[Great Russian Nutcracker] pops to life...this edition [of the Nutcracker] is fresh and bright."
Sioux City Journal

The Oraltpheum Theatre opened its doors in 1922, hosting numerous acts and performances weekly. In its heyday, the theatre hosted nearly every major vaudeville star of the time, including Eddie Cantor and Fannie Brice. The building slowly detereorated over the years, and was closed in 1974. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, but remained closed until 1992 when a group of investors was able to get restorations underway; the renovation work is expected to be completed by 2013. Today, the Orpheum hosts concerts, films, theater and dance productions, and more, including White Christmas, BB King, Brian Setzer, and Los Lobos.
