There's a kingdom just beyond a star, not too far;
You can go if you only dare.
In that kingdom you'll find every sweet tasty treat
you can eat waiting for you there!
Ready for some classic holiday cheer? Don’t miss Artistry in Motion’s 9th annual Winter Spectacular, “The Nutcracker...With a Twist,” on Dec. 14 and 15 at the Prairie Lakes Theatre. The two-act dance concert is a joyous interpretation of Tchaikovsky’’s traditional score from everyone’s favorite holiday ballet, The Nutcracker and The Mouse King.

The music selected includes remixes and covers of the traditional music with jazz, tap, and hip-hop numbers.
