More Chances to See 'Nutcracker' Locally

Peninsula Ballet Theatre has two upcoming performances at the Fox Theatre in Redwood City. The ballet company features dancers from around the Peninsula.

Did you miss last week's performance of The Nutcracker by Ballet America?

Fear not - if you still have hopes to see the beloved holiday ballet this year, you have four more chances coming up to see a show at the historic Fox Theatre downtown.

Peninsula Ballet Theatre (PBT) just wrapped up a pair of shows in Reno, Nev., and is now heading home for four shows at the Fox this Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 15 and 16, and next Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 22 and 23.

If the shows sell out, additional shows may be added, according to PBT's website.

"Inspired by a young girl’s dream, Nutcracker is everyone’s favorite family-friendly ballet, directed by internationally renowned Bruce Steivel, Artistic Director of Peninsula Ballet Theatre," PBT's website explains. "Following the exquisite, sparkling finale, audience members are invited on-stage to meet the dancers. You will applaud every breathtaking moment as you enjoy the magic that only Nutcracker brings."

PBT representatives say, they love performing on the Peninsula, because the area provides "a calm alternative to the issues of parking and expense of San Francisco entertainment."

"Peninsula Ballet Theatre prides itself on being the second-oldest professional dance company in the Bay Area, serving San Mateo County, San Francisco and the East Bay."

San Mateo-based Peninsula Ballet Theatre also offers dance classes in ballet, jazz, hip-hop, folklorico, ballroom, tap and Zumba. New classes are being offered every month.
