It's 'Nutcracker' season!

 

Tchaikovsky's seasonal ballet classic "The Nutcracker" is once again well represented by dance companies and schools around the Midpeninsula.

The professional company Menlowe Ballet will continue its annual tradition of presenting its original mash-up of "The Nutcracker" and the beloved holiday film "It's a Wonderful Life." "It's a Wonderful Nutcracker" is this year boasting an expanded second act and runs Dec. 14-16 and 21-23 at the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Road, Atherton. There will also be a sensory-sensitive performance on Dec. 16.

Other local "Nutcracker" productions include Pacific Ballet's (Nov. 23-25, Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.), Dance Connection Palo Alto's (Nov. 30-Dec. 1, Foothill College), Western Ballet's (Nov. 30-Dec. 2, MV Center for the Performing Arts) Ballet America's (Dec. 7 & 9, Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway St., Redwood City) and Peninsula Ballet's (including "Hip Hop Nutcracker" Dec. 21-24 and 28-29, Fox Theatre, Redwood City).
