Young dancers from Ballet San Jose's "The Nutcracker" will bring their characters to life 1-3 p.m. Sunday at Linden Tree Books, 265 State St. The costumed dancers will take pictures with young shoppers who swing by for a visit. Los Altos Hills resident Elizabeth Hutter, who coordinates the Primary Division of the Ballet San Jose School, is cohosting the event, which matches the classic ballet story to Linden Tree's trove of holiday children's books.
Ten percent of purchases made during their visit will benefit Ballet San Jose, and tickets to this year's production of the NutCracker will be on sale at the store. Nutcracker performances run Dec 13-26 at the Center for Performing Arts in San Jose. For more information about the Nutcracker, visit balletsj.org/nutcracker.html.
