    Ballet South is performing a brand new Christmas ballet called “American Carols. They perform this Sat night at 7 and Sun at 2. The tickets are only $15 and it is at Trinity Prep. It is a nice change from Nutcracker, although there is a little bit of Nutcracker in the performance. Go to for details and to purchase tickets.
