While Tchaikovsky’s ballet is performed throughout the state, the Lawrence Arts Center weaves pieces of our own history into the familiar story. The result is a unique rendition of the holiday classic you will not want to miss.&nbsp; Tue, 01 Nov 2011 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/1/A-Kansas-Version-of-the-Nutcracker/1269/ A Flair for Celebrating History: Medicine Lodge http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/28/A-Flair-for-Celebrating-History-Medicine-Lodge/1164/ <img src='http://www.travelks.com/includes/content/images/media/6191647799_2478bc6588_b.jpg'/><br/>Medicine Lodge celebrates Kansas history with a spectacular flair.
