Two Nutcracker performances with Langley connections are happening in the Fraser Valley this holiday season.

RCYB’ performs at Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Ave.) Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 14 and 15, 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Tickets are available by calling the box office at 604-501-5566 or visiting the centre’s website.

Langley’s Thrive Dance Studio will perform The Nutcracker and the Four Realms at the Chief Sepass Theatre, Dec. 14 to 15.
The performance is a twist on the classic Nutcracker story, which has the protagonist Clara searching for a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box holding a priceless gift.
The story unfolds into a mysterious parallel world where Clara encounters a soldier, a gang of mice, and the regents of three magical Realms.
Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets.
