NUTCRACKER-AND-I-20010101

A new holiday comedy from the theatre - and director -- that brought you Inspecting Carol! 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 Gerard Alessandrini, author of the long-running hit Forbidden Broadway. The production runs November 29, 2011 - December 31, 2011.

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!

Set to star in the production are: Aidan Benavides, Haley Carlucci, Nick Dalton, Annie Golden, Peter Scolari, AJ Shively, and Ed Staudenmayer.
