And a few more that weren't mentioned out here in the East Bay:

Danville Ballet's The Nutcracker

Dance Connection's The Angels Gift

Go to Walnut Creek Holiday Events

Plus a whole host of like events at the Dean Lesher Regional Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek. As well as Annnie at the Willows Theatre and Holiday shows at a dozen other East Bay Theatres.

From the SF Chronicle.

For Bay Area troupes, a season of cash cows
Steven Winn, Chronicle Arts and Culture Critic

This year's competition for the yuletide dollar should be especially keen. With the San Francisco Ballet's eagerly anticipated new production of "Nutcracker" premiering on one side of the bay and Matthew Bourne's distinctively marked version bowing on the other, the public has an enriched abundance of choices. Counting such curiosities as the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band's "Dance-Along Nutcracker" and the National Jewish Theatre Festival's "MeshugaNutcracker!," there are at least eight takes on the Tchaikovsky/E.T.A. Hoffman classic on offer. And that's with Oakland Ballet's production sidelined in 2004, as that company regroups financially.

A preview of Matthew Bourne's "The Nutcracker!" from a report in London:

A new 'Nutcracker' that breaks with tradition? Yes!

Alastair Macaulay, SF Chronicle

London -- "Nutcracker" has become an institution, a calendar event. Even if you don't go to see it, even if it's not staged every Christmas in the city nearest you, you still know that, each night, for weeks on end around Yuletide, thousands of other people from California to Russia will be watching this or that production of "Nutcracker." <a href=http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2004/11/23/DDG059UMTO1.DTL target=_blank>more</a>
