The Nutcracker

When: Fri., Nov. 23, 7 p.m., Sat., Nov. 24, 2 & 7 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 25, 2 p.m. 2012

I've been in a handful of Nutcrackers, and no matter the role, the excitement never disappears. With just the first few bars of Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" I'm transported to the Land of Sweets, and awash with good memories. Get in the holiday spirit, and go see The Nutcracker at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., at 2 p.m. (if you couldn't make Friday or Saturday's performances). Under the direction of Peter Anastos, artistic director of Ballet Idaho, 15-year-old local Colton West snagged the coveted role of the Nutcracker Prince. With the Colorado Springs Philharmonic and the Colorado Springs Children's Chorale; tickets start at $29. — Celine Wright

Price: $29 and up
