Braintree's own ballet company is performing the beloved holiday Nutcracker Ballet at East Middle School auditorium this weekend.
Even after 17 years of the Nutcracker, former Braintree Ballet dancers return to watch the shows and say the performance has changed, evolved for the better, director Melissa Kelley Clark says.
