The 2013-2014 Alamo City Dance Company is preparing for their 21st annual production of The Nutcracker. This holiday classic tells the story of a young girl named Clara who is given a nutcracker as a gift and later that evening dreams of encounters with mice and soldiers in battle. Her nutcracker turns into a price to save the day. This season's performances will be Saturday, December 21st, 2:00 pm & 6:00 pm and Sunday December 22nd, 2:00 pm at McAllister Auditorium on the campus of San Antonio college 1300 San Pedro Avenue.
