“Catch Dumpsta Players muse Messapotamia Lefae (who looked stunning at this weekend’s TOY event) in Pages-to-Pirouettes’ ballet-meets-storytelling adaptation of The Nutcracker this Sunday at the Free Library. This is Lefae’s return to dancing since taking a hiatus 2011. She’s playing an Arabian dancer in the piece, under the hand of artistic director Susan Cade. Can’t make this show? There’s another on December 20th at Trinity Center for Urban Life. Just don’t miss this opportunity to catch this magical performer, who is no doubt adding all kinds of sparkle to this production. Sunday, December 14th, 2 p.m., free, Central Branch of the Free Library, 1901 Vine Street.”
