While the Owl is ostensibly planning the Thanksgiving meal, the notification of a sensory-friendly performance of the Commonwealth Ballet’s The Nutcracker rolled across her messy desk and must be posted. On Friday, November 25 at 1 pm, the Commonwealth Ballet will present a special Sensory and Family-Friendly performance at a reduced price. This is a shortened version – mostly Act I and suitable for younger audiences including children of all ages.
