The Non-Traditional Nutcraker Versions

The Nutcracker, on average, can produce as much as half of a dance companies yearly budget!


 In order to continue bring people to the theater and buying tickets some companies have decided to mix up the traditional ballet. There is a "Chocolate Nutcracker" that represents a multicultural version of the story.  She magically travels to several different countries in this version.  There are rock versions with crazy wigs, and only 7 minutes of ballet total!  There are even athletic versions where the toy solider war is replaced by a football game!  


Whether you go see the traditional Nutcracker or the burlesque version, support your local arts and go see ANY version of it this holiday season!  The Nutcracker runs longer than most other productions thorugh the year, so there aren't many excuses!!
