Can you imagine a birthday without a cake? How about a tooth fairy that didn't leave you money for your teeth? Now imagine a Christmas without seeing the Nutcracker!
I can imagine not watching A Christmas Story on TV but NOT missing the Nutcracker! When you see the sparkling lights, towering tree and dancing candy canes you can't help but get into the holiday spirit and know that snow, Santa and presents are right around the corner.
This Portland tradition has been going on for 56 years and will be performed 14 times from December 14th - 24th at the Keller Auditorium by the Oregon Ballet Theater. Details of the show and tickets can be sought at the OBT website.
The show sells out many times a year, so get your tickets early and be sure to get your children's pictures taken with the dancers before, during or after the show. They make great Christmas gifts for the family.
