Where to see Clara in the Nutcracker and the Scrooge in A Christmas Carol!

Sometimes I feel like the holiday season zooms by before I’ve even realized it has begun. However, nothing helps me get more into the Christmas spirit than relaxing and watching a performance of a classic holiday ballet or play.

There are numerous performances of the Nutcracker and a couple shows of A Christmas Carol around the Seacoast.

If you’re like me and need to take a break from Christmas shopping and baking cookies, make sure to catch one of these local performances. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to dance out of the theater, full of joy, like the Sugar Plum Fairy!
