Royal City Youth Ballet performs The Nutcracker at the ACT in Maple Ridge.

Royal City Youth Ballet brought the magic of The Nutcracker to the ACT in Maple Ridge on Sunday.

The dance company is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with a tour of 20 performances around the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

Of the almost 100 dancers in the production, three are from Maple Ridge: Micaela Churchill-Brown, cast as a reindeer and a party girl; Sabina Nelson, cast as a baby mouse and a reindeer; and six-year-veteran Ashley Donnelly, who is cast as Big Mouse, Flower and Mirleton puppeteer.

Tickets are still available for shows at other venues in the Lower Mainland, including the Massey Theatre in New Westminster on Dec. 8 and the Surrey Arts Centre Dec. 13 to 15.
