Catch the Nightmare Before Christmas Ballet

What happens when the king of Halloween Town stumbles on Christmas Town? The Nightmare Before Christmas. When Tim Burton’s iconic holiday stop-motion film first made millions in 1993, who knew it would become the inspiration for a ballet? The Classical & Contemporary Dance company will bring the production, which bears the same name as the film, to the Spreckels Performing Arts Center in Rohnert Park on December 3 at 7 p.m. and December 4 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for children 11 and younger or $32 for adults, and may be purchased at
