Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about non-existent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what’s on stage instead with today’s deal for tickets to Nutcracker at Ballet Memphis, presented at The Orpheum Theatre, located downtown on Main Street.

A beacon of artistic excellence in the Memphis area for more than 20 years, Ballet Memphis presents a diverse troupe of professionally trained dancers. This holiday season, the twinkle-toed troupe mixes innovation with tradition in a rendition of Tchaikovsky’s timeless score in which each act is choreographed by a different director, giving the production the variety of Doctor Who with far better dance numbers.
Ballet Memphis has earned press from such media outlets as the New York Times and the Huffington Post. The Daily News gave last year’s performance of The Nutcracker a positive review and three Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average: > * Ballet Memphis is something of a little engine that could, to perhaps sum up the imaginative grit of Dorothy Gunther Pugh, who has presided over the group with equal dashes of elegance and temerity for 20 years. – Gia Kourlas, New York Times > * If you have not seen a performance make time to experience the talent of these dancers. You won’t be disappointed. – Misty R., Yelp
