Visions of Sugar Plum Fairies dancing in your head this holiday season? 

You're in luck, because many Atlanta area dance companies will be turning your dreams into performances of "The Nutcracker" in November and December 2017. 

The ever-appealing Sugar Plum Fairy, an introduction to a lifelong love of ballet, will charm audiences along with each company's version of other beloved (and feared) characters like the Snow Fairy and the Rat King.

Here's the lineup of every "Nutcracker" performance to catch this holiday season in Atlanta:
