It just isn't the holidays without a visit to The Nutcracker, which comes to Atlanta for a 13th-consecutive year courtesy of Metropolitan Ballet Theatre. Audiences of all ages will enjoy the magical story of Clara, who dreams that her new toy nutcracker soldier has come to life and embarks on a fantastical adventure ranging from an epic battle with the Rat King to the Sugar Plum Fairy's enchanted Land of Sweets. This year, you can also bring your little ones to "Story Time With the Sugarplum Fairy," where they'll hear the characters literally come to life and receive their own hand-lettered, personalized ballet dancer's pointe shoe to be signed by the cast. Then it's on to the show and its magical onstage world of lavish parties, dancing sugarplums, twirling angels, a dashing prince and of course, Tchaikovsky's timeless score.
“Story Time With the Sugarplum Fairy” begins 90 minutes before show time on the performances scheduled Saturday, December 12 @ 12:30pm and Sunday, December 13 @ 1:30pm. They are open to children ages 14 years old and younger.
If you are bringing your children to Story Time, PLEASE contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s/children’s first name, so their personalized pointe shoe is ready for them!!
