Community Education invites the public to attend The Minnesota Ballet’s rendition of The Nutcracker on Saturday, December 14 from noon to 5:30 p.m. at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph. Participants will depart from the Woodland Elementary School parking lot in Alexandria.

The ballet tells the story of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince as they embark on an adventure, encountering the Land of Sweets, the Sugar Plum Fairy and Mouse King.

Set in turn-of-the-20th-century Manhattan, the production features dancing, costumes and theatrical staging. The CSB/SJU Orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky’s score.

Students ages 5-18 are $35. Adults age 19 or older are $58. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration includes charter bus transportation and the show.

Registration deadline is Monday, November 4 by noon. Register online at or call Community Education at (320) 762-3310.
