    Costumes are ready for an epic battle scene in the Olympic Ballet's "The Nutcracker," playing this weekend at the Edmonds Center for the Performing Arts.

This is the last weekend for Snohomish County's production of "The Nutcracker" and a great time to entertain children just out of school for the holiday break.
Olympic Ballet Theatre offers its traditional version of the classic ballet Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Edmonds.
The local company, which has performed the ballet for more than 30 years, has freshened up its "Nutcracker" this year with an exciting scene for children.
"The Nutcracker" is the story of a little girl named Clara and a special wooden nutcracker doll given to her by her godfather at her family's Christmas Eve party. The night turns magical after Clara falls asleep. She visits another land and meets a prince.
The ballet, based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffman, with music by Tchaikovsky, is about 120 years old. Nutracker ballets have been popular in the United States since the 1960s.
Olympic Ballet performances are 7 p.m. Dec. 20, 2 and 7 p.m. Dec. 21 and 5 p.m. Dec. 22 at the Edmonds Center for the Performing Arts, 410 Fourth Ave N.
Tickets are $20 to $30. For tickets and more information, go to www.olympicballet.com or call the box office at 425-774-7570.
Olympic Ballet Theatre, based in Edmonds, is under the direction of Mara Vinson and Oleg Gorboulev, former dancers with the Pacific Northwest Ballet.
