BalletMet Columbus is in the midst of its two-week run of The Nutcracker, but there's more in store along with the classic ballet. On Saturday, Dec. 27 gear up for A Nutty Nutcracker, a special one-night performance with a Nutcracker theme and a witty plotline.

BalletMet describes the A Nutty Nutcracker as "a show where anything can happen and probably will! There's so much we can't tell you, but we guarantee you an evening of laughs. You'll see your favorite Nutcracker characters in some truly outrageous situations along with several of Columbus' local celebrities."

A Nutty Nutcracker begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Ohio Theatre. Tickets cost $29 to $85 and are available online at Ticketmaster.com. Learn more about the performance at BalletMet.org. –Heather Weekley, @heather_weekley
