Victoria’s resident production of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite is coming to the McPherson Playhouse Dec. 27-30.

Back for its third year, Canadian Pacific Ballet is performing two shows each day at 2 and 7 p.m.

Before each show, the McPherson lobby will be transformed into the Sugar Plum Fair, where children young and old will be delighted by holiday crafts and treats says Roberta Taylor, choreographer and artistic director.

The five women and two men in the company will be joined by approximately 20 young local dancers, some as young as eight-years-old.

Narrated by a grown-up Clara, this version of the Nutcracker is easy to follow and suitable for all ages.

Tickets start at $24.50 and are available at rmts.bc.ca.M
