For more than fifty years, the acclaimed Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre has brought classical and contemporary dance to the delta. Each season includes productions from their local company and traveling troupes, ensuring an artistically eclectic mix of shows that might see Cinderella hosted alongside a modern premiere. An annual staging of The Nutcracker – A Tale from the Bayou puts a local spin on a holiday favorite by transporting the timeless fairy tale to 19th century Louisiana, an era when the state was known for its large population of wooden soldiers.

Crunching metal and the sweet smell of burning rubber prevail as the Monster X Tour invades the Ocean Center, thrilling all ages in an action-packed motorsports showcase. Bigfoot, the forefather of all station-wagon smashers, leads a fleet of competitive 10,000-pound monster trucks, including Bear Foot and Black Knight, through jaw-dropping races, wheelie contests, and freestyle car composting. Transaurus, a two-story transforming robot that never learned to love, buries his woes by chomping entire cars in his massive jaws while watching reruns of Felicity. Before the show, VIP tickets also grant access to the Pit Party, where fans can have autographs signed by the drivers. During intermission, fans get the opportunity to eschew sea level with a ride inside a monster truck or visit General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard and learn its true feelings about excessive hood sliding.

Video Games Live, presented as a finale to the Red Stick International Animation Festival, has become a global phenomenon by blending live symphonic performances of video game music with dynamic video and multimedia elements. With the help of the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conductor Wataru Hokoyama, and a cheat code that gives musicians an unlimited supply of treble clefs, Video Games Live will enthrall its audience with the sights and sounds of classic games as well as more recent screen sensations over the course of two-and-a-half-hours. The exact musical lineup varies by performance, but VGL's regular repertoire includes the well-known notes of Mario, Zelda, Halo, and Warcraft. A synchronized light and laser show and live-action stage actors also add to the entertainment buffet, and special interactive segments will allow some lucky audience members to become part of their favorite games in a way not seen since the marriage of beer and Pong.
