The Galleria Chat appears on this blog each week. The Chat provides a hearty helping of events and announcements to keep you in the know about the area surrounding the Atlanta Galleria Office Park. So without further ado …
The Georgia Ballet Comes to Cobb. This weekend, The Georgia Ballet will bring the quintessential holiday classic, “The Nutcracker,” to the Jennie T. Anderson Theatre at The Cobb Civic Center.

Performances run all weekend, with the first one this Friday at 8:00 p.m. To purchase tickets or for show times, visit the Georgia Ballet website.
