Nutcrackerenchants again


Students at the Northwest Conservatory of Dance in Hillsboro will perform “The Nutcracker” Dec. 14 and 15 at the Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center at Pacific University, 2014 Cedar St. in Forest Grove.

The classic holiday ballet tells in dance the story of a young girl’s Christmas Eve dream of being rescued from attacking mice by a brave nutcracker who is transformed into a handsome prince, and of their journey in an enchanted sleigh to the magic Kingdom of Sweets.

Two shows are scheduled: Saturday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tickets are available at the dance studio, 1055 N.E. 25th Ave., in Hillsboro, and at the door before performances. Ticket prices are $12 for adults and students and $9 for seniors. For information, call 503-693-8362.
