Albemarle Ballet Theatre and the Studio for the Performing Arts present The Funcracker Variety Show at Western Albemarle High School. This second annual anti-blues, mid-winter holiday season production features song, dance, and jazz with the help of many local artists. Proceeds from this family-oriented show benefit the "Dancing off the Streets" need-based scholarship fund. Headliners include The Bobby Read Quartet, Christina Fleming & Lilli Ross singing "Barcarolle," the famous aria from The Tales of Hoffmann, jazz musician Leigh Dick, local dancer Sam Scott, and favorite scenes from The Nutcracker ballet performed by ABT dancers.  One lucky child will win a Dance Theme Party valued at $500. Purchase tickets online, at ABT in Crozet, or at the door. 823-8888.
