The Anchorage Classical Ballet is bringing their take on the holiday classic "The Nutcracker" to the stage this weekend. Members of the cast came by to discuss the show, and give us a preview performance.

The show will be the familiar classic you remember, but with an Alaskan twist, featuring dolls representing iconic animals from Alaska.

The showings are this Friday, December 8 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, December 9 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Both shows will be at The Alaska Center for the Performing Arts.

Tickets are available at
