San Diego Gay Men's Chorus to present "The Nutcracker (Men in Tights!)"

SAN DIEGO -- The award-winning San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus (SDGMC) is back with its celebrated annual holiday show on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 8 pm and Sunday, Dec. 15 at 3 pm. This year’s show, "The Nutcracker (Men in Tights!)," takes place at the Balboa Theatre in downtown San Diego.

"Our family-friendly show promises the whimsical magic of traditional holiday songs together with the fun and frolic people have come to love and expect from our chorus," SDGMC artistic director Gary Holt said. "No one does the holidays like 130 gay men! There’s singing and dancing, naughty and nice, and, yes, actual men in tights!"

Among the show’s many holiday favorites are enchanting and unique arrangements of "The Twelve Days of Christmas," "Silver Bells," "What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve" and "Jingle Bells." There will also be a hilarious send-up of traditional carols from around the world including a brand new "San Diego Carol" that chronicles the unique holiday goings-on at City Hall. The highlight of the evening will be a jubilant rendition of The Nutcracker Suite with all its fantasy characters brought to life from sugar plum fairies to toy soldiers to dancing mice.

Tickets are available by calling 877-296-SONG or at online. Tickets start at $27 up to $70 for preferred VIP seating. A $3 discount is available for seniors, students, active-duty military and groups of 10 or more.
