You can read about “The Nutcracker” at a library, but you can’t see it, right?

This week, at Rowan Public Library, some youngsters and their parents did, when dancers performed part of the Christmas classic as a ‘sneak peek’ for an upcoming production.

One of the most well known and beloved ballets, “The Nutcracker” is the story of a little girl named Clara and her magical journey that begins with a gift from her godfather, Drosselmeyer.

Piedmont Dance Theatre will perform “The Nutcracker” Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. at A.L. Brown High School in Kannapolis.

The Salisbury Symphony will join Piedmont Dance Theatre for performances Dec. 19 at 6:30 p.m. and Dec. 20 at 2:30 p.m. at Keppel Auditorium on the Catawba College campus in Salisbury.
