This Fine Arts Network/Ballet Studio production of The Nutcracker offers all of the elements that viewers have come to love and expect of the show -- from the elegant costumes to the stirring Tchaikovsky score and the dazzling dancing -- with the addition of a unique approach to the telling of the occasionally bewildering story. By expanding on the relationship between young Clara and Drosselmeyer's apprentice (the man who becomes the Nutcracker Prince and defeats the Rat King in Clara's nightmare), this version of The Nutcracker boasts a lovely romance and a more complete story. Some of the ballet's dances have even been rearranged and are presented here in a compelling order that adds to the storytelling nature of the narrative in this award-winning production. Learn More

It's a salute to the music legends and greatest hits of the '50s and '60s presented in a live stage musical format. The Cruisin Oldies Show Band, fronted by tribute artists Mark W. Curran and Tom Haney, keeps the audience singing, clapping and laughing in this non-stop exciting show, which includes multiple costume changes and a unique, radio style narrative that tells the history of rock and roll — as it happened!
The '50s segment includes great songs like "Rock Around The Clock," "16 Candles," "Great Balls of Fire," "All Shook Up," "Pretty Woman," Peggy Sue" and "The Twist" — even an affectionate send up of "Grease!" Artists include Elvis, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Dion and the Belmonts and Chubby Checker. There's also a nostalgic look back at the at the great doo-wop and street corner harmony groups that built the foundation of rock and roll.
Then it's a tribute to "The Swingin' Sixties" presenting the greatest hits of the era from the British Beat to psychedelia — then revs into overdrive with a special salute to Sixties supergroups like The Beatles ("Twist and Shout,") The Beach Boys ("I Get Around") and the Four Seasons ("Sherry").
