Abbotsford Children’s Theatre presents its production of The Nutcracker on Friday and Saturday.

The Nutcracker opens on Christmas Eve when Clara and her brother Frank excitedly await the arrival of Godfather Dross. He always brings the most wonderful (and sometimes even magical) toys.

This year they receive the gift of a wooden Nutcracker. That night, when everyone is asleep, the Nutcracker comes to life and saves Clara from the dreaded Mouse King.

Many more adventures ensue, including a battle between the Toy Soldiers and Mouse Army; a visit to the Snow Kingdom, home of the Snow Queen; and a trip to the Home of the Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy lives.

The show takes place at 7 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way.

Tickets are available online at abbotsfordchildrenstheatre.org or in person at Tourism Abbotsford, The Reach Gallery Museum and Jazz-Ma-Tazz. There may also be tickets available at the door.
