This Thanksgiving weekend the Northwest Ballet Company will present its 34th production of the classic “Nutcracker” at the Bigfork Center for the Performing Arts.

Fritz and his feistiness, Drosselmier and his dancing dolls, saluting soldiers and mischievous mice, sparkling snowflakes soaring across the stage, and the beloved Sugar Plum Fairy with her entourage in the land of the sweets, all will grace the stage for three performances.

Performances are Saturday, Nov. 26, at 2 and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 27, at 4 p.m. The popular Sugar Plum Fairy Parade will follow the 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday. Ticket prices are $23 for adults, $20 for seniors (65 and older), and $15 for children (12 and under).
