A new holiday comedy from the theatre – and director -- that brought you Inspecting Carol!

 At a chaotic dress rehearsal for the local dance company’s annual production of The Nutcracker Ballet, the lead dancer has an unfortunate accident with a prop Christmas Tree -- bringing new meaning to the old adage “Break-A-Leg!”   When the pain killers kick in and visions of sugar plums begin to dance in her head, we’re off for a wild adventure in Snow Globe City with a life sized Nutcracker (of course) and the Sugar Rush Fairy in hot pursuit.  A wacky, wonderful holiday comedy -- complete with magic nuts and mistletoe!ecommended for ages 10 and up
