Providence Performing Arts Center
12/20-12/22/2013
Experience the timeless magic of the holiday season's most treasured tradition. Festival Ballet Providence's production of The Nutcracker is a spectacle of artistry and theater, a Rhode Island classic! On Christmas Eve, a young girl named Clara receives a gift from her mysterious uncle, Herr Drosselmeyer. After falling asleep with the toy cradled in her arms, clara is startled awake by a group of terrifying mice, who are the same size as she is! An exciting battle ensues between the gang of mice and an army of larger-than-life toy soldiers led by The Nutcracker, who has grown and come to life. The battle ends with a sword fight between the Mouse Queen and The Nutcracker, who ultimately wins the fight. He takes Clara on an adventure through a forest filled with snowflakes that float and dance through the air. Then, they arrive at the Kingdom of Sweets, led by the Sugar Plum Fairy herself, who invites the entire kingdom to dance for their special guest.

Now Playing Onstage in Rhode Island - Week of 12/15/2013 MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET THE MUSICAL
OCEAN STATE THEATRE COMPANY
12/4-12/29/2013
Kris Kringle takes on the cynics among us in this musical adaptation of the popular holiday favorite. In his inimitable style, Meredith Willson (THE MUSIC MAN, THE UNSINKABLE Molly Brown), tells us the classic story of the year. A white-bearded gentleman claiming to be the real Santa Claus brings about a genuine MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, spreading a wave of love throughout New York City, fostering camaraderie between Macy's and Gimbel's Department Stores, and convincing a divorced, cynical single mother, her somber daughter and the entire state of New York that Santa Claus is no myth.Filled with humor, spectacle (the opening scene takes place at none other than Macy's famous Thanksgiving Parade) and such beloved songs as "Pinecones and Hollyberries," "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" and "My State, My Kansas," this joyous, heart-warming musical is pure family entertainment, wholesome without being cloying. With its built-in audience base, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET THE MUSICAL is the perfect holiday treat for any theatre!
