MY FIRST NUTCRACKER To Return To Theatre Row This December

On December 3, 2022, New York City Children's Theater hit holiday production, My First Nutcracker will return live to Theatre Row for the first time since 2019.

filled with delicious treats, dancing flowers, and a pesky mouse king. The show, adapted for young audiences by Barbara Zinn Krieger and directed and choreographed by Melissa Riker, celebrates and explores imagination, family, tradition, and
female empowerment.

"I am so excited for our My First Nutcracker audiences to experience Clara's journey and see so many ways an adventurous spirit and imagination can be felt through dance," says Director and Choreographer Melissa Riker.

Playing live at Theatre Row from December 3rd - 22nd | Best for ages 3-8
Run Time: Approximately 50 minutes
