Who says you have to drive all the way to downtown Chicago, fight traffic, outrageous parking fees, and long cold walks to get to your destination? How about a 5 minute drive with free parking right here in Elgin? Join the Elgin Community College when it hosts a holiday favorite, The Nutcracker! For two special performances only, December 8 and 9 at 3pm, you and your family can enjoy the sounds of the Nutcracker performed by the Ruth Page Civic Ballet in the Blizzard Theater.
