Event Description

Debbie Allen’s Hot Chocolate Nutcracker has taken tradition and given it a new context, fresh lively characters, new music and spectacular dancing to bring a vibrant, unforgettable theater experience for all ages to enjoy.

Following the idea of the original, it’s Christmas Eve and the Johnsons are having a grand party. The Christmas gifts are shared and young Kara receives a Nutcracker filled with hot chocolate – her favorite. She falls asleep and the journey begins when the Nutcracker comes alive!

Three wise cracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey take over the story. They are the three stooges incarnate from N.Y.C. who call themselves “The Real Rat Pack”. They go to many new lands of wonder: Candy Cane Land, Egypt, the Indian Rainforest/Bollywood, Jazzland, Russia, and the Land of the Kimono Dolls.

Starring Debbie Allen, Raven-Symoné,Carlo Imperato, Tichina Arnold, Matthew Johnson, and DADA!

Original score by Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen,James Ingram, Shiamak Davar, Tena Clark and Thump
