Every year Christmas gives us a little bit more hustle and bustle, mostly created by ourselves. And in the midst of that tumultuous season’s rush there is a place of solace we can retreat to. The quiet magic that fills the atmosphere with a child’s delight, no matter how old that child may be. It is time for that timeless tale to be told yet again as composed by the ever great Tchaikovsky and performed for us as presented by The Collins center for the Arts. The grand little eccentric toymaker casts life into his childlike creation and battles the mouse king as good yet again battles evil. A marvelous display of dance and visual candy floats gingerly across the stage granting us entry into one of the most beloved stories known for the season. Come experience it for yourself at The Collins center for the Arts December 19th at 2p.m. and 7p.m. and December 20th at 3 p.m. watch the charming spellbinding saga come to life before your very eyes.
