The School of Performing Arts will present "Winter Wonderland," an adaptation of A&A Ballet's world-premiere production of Alexei Kremnev's "Nutcracker," next week in Naperville.

The 45-minute production, filled with excerpts from Kremnev's rendition of the holiday classic, can introduce young audiences to classical ballet and a tradition of the season.

The show will take the stage at 3 and 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, at North Central College's Madden Theatre, 171 E. Chicago Ave.

After the performance, audience members will find a photo opportunity with the Sugar Plum Fairy and an arts and crafts station where children can make their own keepsake picture frame.

Tickets, $10 for children and $20 for adults, are available at

The School of Performing Arts is celebrating its 27th year on the heels of multiple milestones, including the relocation and expansion of its main Naperville campus, the opening of a studio in downtown Chicago, and collaboration with A&A Ballet.
