ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Oct. 17, 2013) – Artz 4 Life Academy brings back its annual production, a spin on Tchaikovsky’s classic Russian Nutcracker two-act ballet, for two shows at The Mahaffey Theater Saturday, Dec. 21 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Considered one of the holiday season’s best offerings, it is also among the most-loved!
