Back by popular demand for the 7th year!

I am happy to inform you we will be presenting “The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker” at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion as our annual theatrical production.
The letters, artwork, and creativity that this work inspired in young people who attended last year’s performance is beyond remarkable. So I encourage you to sign up early as we were filled to capacity last year with a long waiting list. School performance will be on December 18th. The show runs for 90 minutes and starts promptly at 10:00am.
Following the idea of the original, it’s Christmas Eve and the Johnsons are having a grand party. The Christmas gifts are shared and young Kara receives a Nutcracker filled with hot chocolate – her favorite. She falls asleep and the journey begins when the Nutcracker comes alive! Three wise cracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey take over the story. They are the three stooges incarnate from N.Y.C. who call themselves “The Real Rat Pack”. They go to many new lands of wonder: Candy Cane Land, Egypt, the Indian Rainforest/Bollywood, Jazzland, Russia, and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. With dazzling choreography, music and costumes, this is a holiday theater experience that all ages will enjoy!
I have taken tradition and given it a new context, fresh lively characters, new music and spectacular dancing to bring a vibrant, unforgettable theater experience for all ages to enjoy. Don’t miss this wonderful production created just for you!!
Hope to see you there,
