This year, special guest stars Ethan and Nikki White, finalists in Paula Abdul's "Live to Dance" join a cast of more than 100 dancers -- ranging in age from 3 to 60 to bring "The Nutcracker" to life. The Whites will play the Snow King and Queen as well as the Arabian dancers in Alameda Civic Ballet's eighth annual production of the magical holiday ballet. Set to Tchaikovsky's timeless score, the audience follows young Clara and her Nutcracker prince on a Christmas night journey that begins with an epic battle against the Mouse King, through the Land of the Snowflakes to the Kingdom of Sweets, ruled by the enchanting Sugar Plum Fairy.
Gingerbread soldiers and sugarplum fairies aren't merely figments of your child's active imagination -- they're actually some of the stars you'll see on stage when you watch Graham Lustig's "The Nutcracker" from the Oakland Ballet Company.
