Merry_Christmas_-_Christmas_tree_decoration_ball_ornaments_Wallpaper_21_1600x1200The Fox Theatre is hosting holiday tours in December that feature meet-and-greets with dancers from Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker, including illusionist (and 2009 “America’s Got Talent” finalist) Drew Thomas, who plays Herr Drosselmeyer for part of the run. Included: family photos with a life-sized nutcracker and a close-up tour of the historic theater decked out in holiday finery.

The 30-minute tours start two hours before each Nutcracker performance (tour admission is separate from show tickets) and include the Mighty Mo, the Fox’s massive Moeller theater organ. Afterward guests receive a merchandise voucher for commemorative items and chocolate goodies from the Melting Pot restaurant in Midtown.

Tour details: Dec. 6-29 before all Nutcracker performances (Show and tour times HERE). $35; $25 age 10 and under. Tickets are available to the general public and do not require a Nutcracker ticket. Tour tickets available ONLINE, at the Fox Theatre box office (660 Peachtree St. N.E.) or at 855.285.8499.
