The Nutcracker
Ballet San Antonio once again brings the perennial holiday favorite The Nutcracker to the Tobin for 12 performances with live accompaniment of the Tchaikovsky score provided by the San Antonio Symphony. Inspired by the classic E.T.A. Hoffmann tale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, reality and fantasy blend in a young girl’s dreams of a handsome prince, frightening rodents at war and exotic characters from around the globe. This production debuted just last season, choreographed by artistic director Willy Shives. The sparkling production blends Shives’ artistic vision with that of the legendary Gerald Arpino, utilizing the great maestro’s choreography for The Land of Snow and Waltz of the Flowers variations. Arpino was the co-founder of Joffrey Ballet and a tremendous mentor to Shives during his many years with that company. In this family-friendly fare, more than 100 children from the community will join the dancers of the company along with local celebrities making surprise cameo appearances. Guest celebrities performing include KSAT on-air talent like Mike Osterhage and Ursula Pari as well as the San Antonio Spurs Coyote, and former Spur Matt Bonner. $24.50-$129, 7:30pm Fri, 2pm & 7:30pm Sat, 2pm Sun (through Dec. 3), Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org. — Tami Kegley

Texas Body Paint Competition
Since its launch in 2010, Beyond the Canvas has grown into an arts organization associated with nearly 100 body painters, special effects artists, models, photographers and other creative types. Founded by art and music enthusiast Tomas Vasquez and sponsored by the Avenida Guadalupe Association, the collective regularly comes together for showcases, competitions and special events in San Antonio (as well as Louisiana, South Carolina, Georgia and New York) and also works with area charities such as the Believe It Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to “the inclusion of kids with physical challenges into the lives and experiences of their typical peers.” Through their outreach efforts with the Believe It Foundation, BTC has touched the lives of kids like 18-year-old Xavier Sanchez. Born without arms or legs, Sanchez recently visited the Beyond the Canvas studio and found a new level of confidence after being transformed with body paint. Following a theme of “Dreams and Delusions,” the outfit’s 10th annual Texas Body Paint Competition brings together 25 body paint artists and 25 “live canvases” for a creative battle with guest judges from the reality series Skin Wars, performances by hoop artists, the Afro-Brazilian troupe Capoeira Luanda and stand-up comic Cleto Rodriguez, and more than $1,000 in cash prizes. $25-$50, 7pm-midnight, Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe St., (210) 271-3151, beyondthecanvas.org. — BR
