About this show

More Talking! More Singing! Less Dancing! A new holiday comedy for the family from the theatre - and director -- that brought you Inspecting Carol! Young and old will enjoy this nutty send up of The Nutcracker story featuring Tchaikovsky's glorious music with a hysterical new story and lyrics by the award-winning masters of musical parody Emmy Award winner Peter Brash and author of the long-running hit Forbidden Broadway, Gerard Alessandrini. At a chaotic dress rehearsal for the local dance company's annual production of The Nutcracker Ballet, the lead dancer has an unfortunate accident with a prop Christmas Tree -- bringing new meaning to the old adage "Break-A-Leg!" When the pain killers kick in and visions of sugar plums begin to dance in her head, we're off for a wild adventure in Snow Globe City with a life sized Nutcracker (of course) and the Sugar Rush Fairy in hot pursuit. A wacky, wonderful holiday comedy -- complete with magic nuts and mistletoe!
