Actress, dancer and choreographer Debbie Allen's fun, fresh spin on The Nutcracker returns to Royce Hall for the holidays. The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker gives the seasonal favorite a rich new cultural context and updated characters, and features a lively contemporary score with original songs from multiple-Grammy-winner Mariah Carey and others. After young Kara receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate, she falls asleep and journeys to enchanted lands, including Candy Cane Lane, Egypt, the Rainforest, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. Little ones will have no trouble following along thanks to the narration by three wisecracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey. Allen herself appears in this fun holiday musical adventure.

Quotes & Highlights
- "One of the most entrancing literary treats of many a year...A tapestry of extraordinary nuance and richness." --Wall Street Journal
- Alexander McCall Smith's The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
This Zimbabwe-born Scot and former professor of medical law became an overnight sensation in the U.S. with the 2002 release of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, "a literary confection of such gossamer deliciousness that one feels it can only be good for you" (The New York Times). Starring Precious Ramotswe, a charming and delightfully cunning Botswana woman who sets up shop in a small storefront under the African sky, the award-winning mystery series has become a beloved international bestseller. The seventh installment is due out in April 2006.
