Beyond The Nutcracker

If holiday classics likeThe Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol seem as stale as last year’s fruitcake, you might want to check out Reno Irish Dance Company’s A Celtic Christmas. The production tells the story of a young girl who travels from village to village in search of “the light,” the candle in the window which represents the true meaning of Christmas. The show includes a variety of Celtic dance and music. Showtimes are 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Dec. 5 at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts, 100 S. Virginia St. Tickets are $12-$20. Call 829-7878.
