On Sunday locals are invited to get into the Christmas spirit with a sugar plum fairy and lots of mice at the Auburn Arts Association's presentation of "The Nutcracker."
The eighth annual performance of the ballet will begin at 2 p.m. at the Opelika Center for Performing Arts.Â
"It's a classic, and it's a very simple tale about a little girl who receives a nutcracker doll from her uncle," said Cindy Davino, artistic director of Auburn Ballet and an Alabama Dance Council Board of Directors member.
