RIDGEFIELD, Conn. — The Enchanted Garden School of Dance will present its 14th annual holiday program "Nuts About the Nutcracker" on Saturday at Ridgefield High School.

The cast features 150 dancers, ages 5 through 18, who will perform to contemporary orchestrations.

The show was conceived and choreographed by Jean Cobelli, Enchanted Garden’s dance director.

The program is a big twist on the original tale but meant to be family-friendly, said Cobelli.

"I am a native Ridgefielder; therefore, I created a storyline that takes place in the town of Ridgefield," she said.

Tickets are $20 and proceeds will go to SPHERE, a nonprofit organization that helps special-needs adults in the Ridgefield community.

Tickets may be purchased online or at the door. Click here to purchase tickets online.

There will be two performances, at noon and 5 p.m. Dec. 17.

Ridgefield High School is at 700 North Salem Road, Ridgefield.
