This offbeat and thoroughly original holiday treat offers festive cheer while engaging audiences to participate (think G-rated “Rocky Horror” fun). Appropriate for ages 8 to 80, and beyond, NPR’s Sandra Tsing Loh's Sugar Plum Fairy tells the story of a 12 year-old girl who dreams of dancing the lead in The Nutcracker. Audiences are encouraged to come decked out in ugly holiday sweaters, tutus, and Hanukah hats and be prepared to join in the 75 minutes of madcap merriment. Bart De Lorenzo directs with a cast of characters you won’t forget. Joining Sandra Tsing Loh are Tony Abatemarco and Shannon Holt. Tickets are on sale now at skylighttheatre.org
