It's a Wonderful Nutcracker
The Nutcracker by Peter Tchaikovsky and It’s A Wonderful Life by Frank Capra are two of the most popular and famous Christmas stories of all time. The two are performed and enjoyed throughout the holiday season all across the country. Well, the Menlowe Ballet and artistic director Michael Lowe have taken these two classic tales and combined them into one giant Christmas celebration. The ballet is set to Tchaikovsky’s classical score with some Duke Ellington inspired jazz added in for good measure. From there, the powerful story of redemption and Christmas spirit from It’s a Wonderful Life is added to give the show even more magic and fun. With shows on December 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17, you have many opportunities to experience this one of kind performance. It’s A Wonderful Nutcracker is a family friendly show, for those over 5 years old, and is a great way to celebrate the holiday season.
