Mix things up this holiday season with a wide variety of performing arts options. Sometimes you might want a Nutcracker with graceful dancers and fantastic costumes, other times you might want a silly version of the classic with a pop culture twist. You could belt out your favorite songs at a singalong or be transported by the swell of an orchestra. Whichever you prefer, we hope it’s the perfect blend of merry and bright.
