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.
