It’s the most wonderful time of the year

The air is cool and crisp.  The trees are shedding their rust-colored leaves. It's sweater and boots weather, ya'll!  And that can only mean one thing... It's almost Nutcracker season! The characters from Atlanta Ballet's Nutcracker have joined Twitter! Follow them and keep up to date on all things Nutcracker...just make sure Rat King behaves himself!Everyone loves a man in uniform.  When I'm not leading my faithful band of toy soldiers into battle against the Rat King, I'm the constant companion to young Marya Petrov.  Nutcrackers like me have been around since the 19th century, and I hope to continue that legacy and spread holiday cheer for many years to come! Follow me on Twitter: @NutcrackerATL    I may be a gigantic rodent, but I enjoy the finer things in life: cheese, storm drains, and bossing around my minions.  Every story needs a villain, and I am happy to oblige.  Maybe it's my mischievous grin, my long ratty toes, or my scraggly fur, but I'm perfect rat to make things difficult for the valiant Nutcracker. Follow me on Twitter: @RatKingATL    While the Sugar Candy Kingdom is my home, I enjoy spending the holidays at the Fox Theatre with my friends Marya and Nutcracker.  Since Tchaikovsky composed a little number just for me, my Cavalier joins me each year for our iconic pas de deux. Follow me on Twitter: @SugarPlumATL [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvWtYaYq6FU] Tickets are on sale now.
