ALl Stars Nutcracker

The show must go on … this year!

An annual performance is returning to the stage this weekend after the pandemic forced last year’s shows to be cancelled — An ALL STARS Nutcracker will feature dancers from the ALL Stars Performing Arts Academy. But this isn’t a traditional take on the Nutcracker ballet, ALL STARS has put its unique twist on the tale.

“Because ALL STARS offers dance classes in a great variety of styles (Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Contemporary Ballet, Belly Dancing, Irish, Ballroom/Latin, Clogging, and Urban Popping), we wanted to have a holiday show to include all these styles, and with that put a fun twist on the classic Nutcracker ballet,” said Victoria Kesler, artistic director for the academy.

Now in its seventh year, the family-friendly ALL STARS Nutcracker will feature a character intent on mischief — the Grinch continuing his Stop the Merriment Campaign. The Grinch has made appearances at several community events even as far back as Halloween, including White Oak Elementary’s Trunk or Treat, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Season on the Square and Sugar Hill’s Holiday Celebration.

While Saturday’s performances are sold out, a limited number of tickets are still available for Sunday’s shows at 1 and 7 p.m. and can be purchased by clicking here. Performances will be held at the Eagle Theatre at 5029 W. Broad St. in Sugar Hill.
