The Nutcracker 2016, has not generated the publicity it's entitled to. The Sarasota Cuban Ballet School is premiering their holiday season production of The Nutcracker at the historic Sarasota Opera House on Friday December 2 at 7pm. Featuring their students, this holiday classic was conceived by the school's artistic directors and resident choreographer.
A yearly tradition of the school, this is the first time they have performed at the best venue in our community. To order tickets call 941-328-1300 or click here to purchase tickets on line. A perfect venue for this traditional Christmas classic.
Another Christmas classic is returning to Westcoast Black Theatre, this time by "popular demand". BLACK NATIVITY, adapted and directed by Nate Jacobs, has sold out each year, and 2016 should be no exception.
The show is a celebration of the Nativity story with gospel, blues, spiritual and Christmas music, paired with poetry of Langston Hughes and the creativity of WBTT. This is a high energy performance; something we've grown to expect from this company.
Don't wait a moment longer to get great seats for this month long theatre experience. Just click here. Or visit their box office at 1343 Main St. Ste 402.
If your interest is classical music, then the Sarasota Orchestra's Masterworks program 12/2-4 is where you should be. With Anu Tali, conducting and international phenom Vadim Gluzman on violin, this

I'm breaking a promise made two weeks ago re: NO MORE CUBS until next year. However, for those of you who will not be going to ballet, symphony, or WBTT and will be at home on Friday read further.
You must have access to FS-1 or a DVR. If so, please join me as I watch the television premier movie of the CUBS World Series win over the Cleveland Indians. Highlights and interviews with narration from long-time CUBS fan, Vince Vaughn. The festivities begin at 7:00 pm. You know I'll be watching and recording.
Paul Charlesworth, neighbor and friend wants to thank all of you who participated a few weeks ago in the Sarasota Alzheimer's Walk. Close to 1,200 of you walked, raising nearly $200,000. Simply AMAZING!!!
JIM'S RANT....Grabbed Thursday's Sarasota Herald Tribune from driveway and boy was it heavy!! With all those circulars, it was difficult to find the NEWS. But I did, and much to my chagrin, it was obvious the paper was printed at least 24 hours earlier. No Wednesday stock closing numbers, no television sports schedule for Thanksgiving, nothing about the Trump appointments. We're paying way too much money to have all those advertisements without any content to go along with them.
Hope you have a great week.....only 29 days until CHRISTMAS.......JIM
