Dogs and ballet usually don't mix, but the Charleston Ballet Theatre's professional dancers have decided to share the stage with some four-legged friends during four upcoming performances of The Nutcracker...or shall we say, Muttcracker!

This holiday season, the Charleston Ballet Theatre and the Charleston Animal Society have teamed up in what will make for one of the most unique dog adoption opportunities of the year. Dancers and dogs will share the stage during upcoming performances in hopes of finding the CAS's loving canines a happy home.

The Charleston Ballet Theatre's Charleston-themed Nutcracker has been a holiday classic for over three decades. The show, set in the Lowcountry of the 1860's, features familiar Charleston names and landmarks, making this holiday classic a truly unique Charleston Christmas time experience.

Guests are invited to come see and meet the pups on December 10-11 at the Gaillard Auditorium and December 16-17 at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center.
