Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune Ballet West performance of "The Nutcracker" at the Val Browning Center in Ogden Nov. 23.

Ballet West is getting “nutty” over sports this weekend.

The Salt Lake City ballet troupe continues its annual tradition of finishing its run of “The Nutcracker” with a parody version, “The Nutty Nutcracker,” tonight and Saturday at the Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, Salt Lake City.

The show promises lots of surprises for “Nutcracker” regulars — and this year, according to Ballet West’s website, many of the jokes this year have a sports theme.

“The Nutty Nutcracker” plays tonight at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m.

Tickets, from $18 to $74, are available at ArtTix locations.
