Weekend performances on tap

If you're not quite ready to say goodbye to the Christmas spirit after Friday, good news - BalletMet will be performing its Nutcracker ballet on Saturday and Sunday!

This holiday classic, packed with sugar plums, dancing snowflakes, mice with bad attitudes and the most famous music this side of "Silent Night," will have shows at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Ohio Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 26, and then a final show at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 27. (There's also one last show before Christmas tonight, Dec. 23, at 7:30 p.m.)
