The Nutcracker

Join us for our reimagining of the Christmas classic- The Nutcracker.
When teenager Marie is gifted a Nutcracker by her fabulous Uncle Drosselmeier, she embarks on a wild and festive adventure bursting with joy, dance, music and FLUFFY HATS!
From the dark depths of the Midnight world to the glittery gloriousness of Candyland, Marie learns how to be her most bold, true and punky self.
The Nutcracker is all about how self-acceptance and self-expression can be the most powerful tools you have (for both younger and older humans!).
This exciting, all-inclusive show takes inspiration from the original story from 1816 and cranks it up to NOW!
