When I was a little girl, I was fascinated by the Nutcracker Ballet. I would often twirl around in my living room, in my tutu and pretend I was Clara. I was mesmerized by the grace and beauty of this magical show. I am thrilled to announce that this holiday show is now playing at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Orange County now through Sunday December 17th.
