Just yesterday, I discovered Barbie in the Nutcracker. The best part of that pink-and-purple DVD presentation is Tim Curry — yes, Rocky Horror's Frank-N-Furter — voicing the Mouse King. I kept picturing tin soldiers doing the Time Warp. (Doesn't happen.) A more traditional option: At 1 and 5 p.m. today (with additional shows Saturday and Monday), Colorado's Classical Youth Ballet presents A Nutcracker Ballet and Holiday Tea at Rampart High School Theater (8250 Lexington Drive, coclassicalyouthballet.com). There's no Tim Curry, but you will enjoy local favorite David Sckolnik narrating as Tchaikovsky. For $17 to $21, catch the classic, enjoy some treats and tea, and as Frank would say, "Give yourself over to absolute pleasure." — Jill Thomas
