The South Carolina Dance Theatre presents the Nutcracker annually to open the holiday season. The ballet is based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s tale, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King”. The story takes you through a young girl’s dream of glittering snowflakes, a beautiful Snow Queen, dancing Ginger Snap’s, a dazzling Sugar Plum Fairy, a wicked Mouse King, and a Nutcracker which is magically transformed into a handsome prince. This beloved ballet will be a wonderful addition to your holiday season.
