Frequent Flyers Productions Presents Nutcracker Spinoff RATCRACKER, Now thru 12/9


As inspiration for their Christmas show, Frequent Flyers Productions has posed the question, "What would happen if the infamous rats take down the Nutcracker and carry the audience into a world where flight and fantasy are a reality?" A Boulder, Colorado-based aerial-dance company presents their own fanciful take on the Nutcracker in a holiday show, Ratcracker. This family spin-off runs tonight, November 30-December 9. Performances are Fridays at 7pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. at 7:00 PM.  All shows are at the Dairy Center for the Arts (2590 Walnut Street, Boulder).

Tickets are all by reserved seating at $25. Patrons may also buy four or more tickets at $20 each. Tickets will be available by phone or in person through the Dairy’s box office starting mid-October: 303-444-SEAT (Monday – Friday, noon- 5 PM) or online with a credit card at Tickets will also be available at the door at the time of the show. The box office opens one hour prior to show time.

Frequent Flyers Productions’ creative holiday offering takes its inspiration from the traditional Nutcracker and according to Frequent Flyers, turns it upside down.  Instead of just traditional ballet, dancers use the low-flying trapeze, Spanish web, stilts, bungee, rope and harness, aerial fabric, and even a flying bed to take the audience on a topsy-turvy journey into the Rat Kingdom. Ratcracker is set to an eclectic Nutcracker-inspired score that is intended for adults and children of all ages. Ratcracker is performed by Frequent Flyers’ professional company and joined by the Frequent Flyers’ community apprentice company.
