Perennial favourite The Nutcracker is back.  James Kudelka's masterpiece version is action packed and is delighting sold out crowds at the Four Season's Centre.  Tickets are scarce for pre-Christmas dates but the ballet runs until January 2nd.  Be sure to check out availability here.  And if you are feeling spontaneous there are day of rush tickets available for $35.00.  Check out rush info here

Another delightful offering the whole family can enjoy is Humber River Shakespeare Company's A Christmas Carol  which is playing tomorrow at Montgomery's Inn at 2p.m. and 7 p.m.  See the Dickens' classic in one of Toronto's historic houses.  With tickets just $20 for adults and $10 for children this is one everyone will love. But you'd better act fast because tickets will sell out.  To reserve yours click here now. 

And now for something for just the big kids.  Our favourite musical married duo George and Sharron are back for their annual holiday sing-a-long at Buddies. Tonight and tomorrow night only these two will kick off your holiday with spirit.  And spirits too, most likely.  

This is sure to be the most fun holiday event this weekend, and probably for the rest of the year.  You wont want to miss it.  Click here for ticket information.  You wont want to wait because tickets are going fast.
