We’re welcoming the Moscow Ballet to Bedell Performance Hall on Tuesday, December 11 and Wednesday, December 12. Presenting a familiar story in a new way, the “Great Russian Nutcracker” follows Masha and her Nutcracker Prince to the Land of Peace and Harmony. Framed by intricate rolling backgrounds, dancers perform daring choreography, including the Moscow Ballet’s exclusive Dove of Peace, where two dancers balance with each other to form a soaring bird whose wings span twenty feet.

If you’re visiting for Thanksgiving, welcome back.

We’re kicking things off at 8 a.m. Thanksgiving morning, November 22 with the Gobble Wobble at the Osage Centre. This 5K run and two-mile walk is the perfect way to burn calories so you don’t feel guilty about pigging out later.

If your favorite part of Thanksgiving weekend is Black Friday, sales are going on all over town – some of them beginning Thursday night.
