Posted on November 13, 2013 by

Columbia City Ballet returns with “Nutcracker” on tour at the Johnny Mercer Theatre, 301 W. Oglethorpe Ave. at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $20-$42.

As part of its 50th anniversary season, the Columbia City Ballet will bring “The Nutcracker” to the Johnny Mercer Theatre in Savannah for a dazzling, full-scale performance on Saturday. Featuring a cast of professional and local dancers under the direction of executive and artistic director William Starrett, this touring production of “The Nutcracker” stars Victoria Cholkas and Mark Krieger as principal dancers. The Columbia City Ballet’s performance offers a deeply psychological interpretation of the holiday classic. Savannah audiences should expect an elegant, ambitious production of “The Nutcracker” that “The State” newspaper in Columbia has already called “as close to perfect as you can get.”
