A rendition of The Nutcracker came to life at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre on Dec. 14.

Performed by Ballet Victoria, with local dancers from Just for Kicks Dance Studio, Clara opened a forbidden box and danced with the creatures, before thanking them with a flower and sending them on their way.
