The Sacramento Ballet's annual Nutcracker returns to Downtown Sacramento. The Nutty Nutcracker retuns for it's second year and it rings the bell twice this year. December 9th and 16th the Nutty Nutcracker zings the Communtiy Center Theatre after httin the egg nog in the dressing rooms. Find out more here. Meanwhile the Nutcracker runs through the 23rd in case you want the more traditional approach.
The Nutty Nutcraker was created for the first time last year and was well received(honk honk). It's a little cray cray and a zany take on the classic. Think perfrorming in bathrobes and bikinis with extra wit and vinegar with the jokes. Should probably leave the kids at home for this one.
Beer & Ballet
Some people need a beer to go to the ballet. So here's your time to shine... The Sacramento Ballet hit hard times and is trying to emerge the other side financially. They've made some moves, nipped a few things, and have decided to dance onward and upward.

Beer & Ballet returns to Sacramento this year at Sacramento City College 2/19/16 through 2/28/16. Exposing beer drinkers to Ballet and a few Ballet aficionados to beer. Not quite resse's cup like but the explanation will have to do. The choreography is done by some of the dancers and it changes every year so if you went last year; go again this year.
