The House Theatre of Chicago's The Nutcracker is a fantastical deconstruction of E.T.A. Hoffmann's time-honored holiday story, with lots of humor and heart -- and no ballet. This fresh theatrical interpretation centers on young Clara's journey to save Christmas. With the help of a magical nutcracker given to her by her beloved Uncle Drosselmeyer, she'll bravely fight the Rat King to save her family. This modern holiday production weaves together riveting dialogue, astonishing puppetry, original song and spellbinding imagery to tell a heartwarming story of love, loss and hope. Learn More

excellent, extremely well done, they did an excellent job on this production.
Thoroughly enjoyed. Would highly recommend!
Te only complaint we had was for the "Preview Night " production they had no program. We like to know the actors names & history, it's interesting to see if we have seen them before and with no program you don't get to find our the names of any cast member.
Adaptation, Direction and Fight Choreography by Matt Hawkins
Original Music by Kevin O’Donnell
Lyrics by Shawn Pfautsch and Matt Hawkins
The House Theatre of Chicago opens its 10th Anniversary Season with Cyrano, an original adaptation of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac, adapted and directed by House Company Member Matt Hawkins.
Cyrano is the quintessential Renaissance Man. A natural leader, courageous soldier, brilliant swordsman, skilled musician and a master of language, our hero fails only in love. Hawkins' Cyrano pulls the audience into a wild love triangle as Cyrano pursues Roxanne through music, poetry and the most spectacular sword fighting ever to hit The House stage.
With original music by Kevin O'Donnell (lyrics by Matt Hawkins and Shawn Pfautsch), set by Collette Pollard, lights by Lee Keenan, and sound by Michael Griggs, Cyrano is The House at its best, giving Chicago a fresh look at a classic story told with enormous heart and packed with amazing feats of storytelling.
