A CLASSIC REIMAGINED The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker is Debbie Allen’s adaptation of the classic two-act ballet by composer Tchaikovsky, revisited into a modern musical. Ms. Allen takes us on an exciting journey to new lands with larger than life, fun-filled characters.
SYNOPSIS It's Christmas Eve and the Johnson Family is having a grand party. The Christmas gifts are shared and young Kara receives a nutcracker doll filled with hot chocolate - her favorite. She falls asleep and the journey begins when the Nutcracker, who later turns into a prince comes alive.
Three wise cracking mice guide the adventure; Harvey, Schmink and Buckey. They are the Three Stooges incarnate from New York City who call themselves "The Real Rat Pack.”
They go to many new lands of wonder: Candy Cane Land, Egypt, the Indian Rainforest, Bollywood, Jazzland, and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. The adventures are never-ending from the toy soldiers waging battle with flamenco-stamping cockroaches to the production's original music, choreography and soulful performances.
Tchaikovsky's music has been replaced with original scores from award-winning performers such as Arturo Sandoval and Mariah Carey. This adaptation is the new holiday classic that will keep you coming back year after year.
Hot Chocolate Nutcracker is at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, which is located in Redondo Beach, CA, United States, 90278.
