Article from the Beaver County times 12/3/15 - Written by Scott Tady: http://www.timesonline.com/entertainment/local_entertainment/the-nutcracker-ready-to-delight-in-ambridge-midland-and-pittsburgh/article_b058b46c-91f3-11e5-aee6-8b065f3bffe1.html
Written almost 200 years ago, the original story was a scary fairy-tale intended only for adults.
A few storyline tweaks turned "The Nutcracker" into a family favorite and cherished holiday tradition.
Two local "Nutcracker" productions open this weekend -- at Ambridge Area High School and the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh -- with another "Nutcracker" stepping forward later this month at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center in Midland.
Each show uniquely presents the dreamlike, coming-of-age tale, complete with Mouse King, Sugar Plum Fairy and toy soldiers, told with whimsy, beauty and rousing choreography.
Students in the 8th Grade Advanced Science classes fielded the annual Bradys Run Stream Study on May 22. Standard categories were Environment and Ecology, Mathematics, Science and Technology.
