I've never been to the Nutcracker before. Until last Thursday night! My friend Amanda and I decided to go see Ballet West's The Nutcracker at the Capitol Theatre. I really liked it! Amanda has seen it a million times, and couldn't believe it when I told her I hadn't ever gone to see it. For some reason, I was never in on it when my Grandma took my sister and cousins to go see it. Weird. But it was worth the wait, and I really liked it. Some parts I was like, wait, what are they doing? But I thought it was a beautiful thing. My favorite part was when the lady with the giant dress (who I swear was played by a guy in this production), comes out and then she lifts her dress a few times, and little dancers come scurrying out of it. Its so cute!
Amanda also gave me an awesome birthday present on Thursday too. As always. Thanks Amanda! :)
