The Columbia City Ballet welcomes Grant Show for The Nutcracker

COLUMBIA SC (WOLO) For fifty years, the Nutcracker has been a Columbia City Ballet tradition, and this year is no different.  According to the ballet company’s Executive Director William Starrett, this year, as with years past will be a different twist on the classic tale.  “We have pulled out all the stops,” says Starrett, who writes and choreographs the performance each year.

According to Starrett, Grant Show, who current stars in the Dynasty reboot and Melrose Place, returns to the Koger stage to play the role of the prince.  Show also appeared in the Columbia City Ballet’s Dracula performance a few years ago, Starrett says.
