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
- "[Birkin] brought out [Gainsbourg's] melodic gift and melancholy side, in songs about the endless mismatches of love and lust, the ravages of time and the sadness that follows bliss." --New York Times
With her gamine good looks, beguiling demeanor and sweet voice, this radiant mini-skirted girl from Chelsea took London by storm in the '60s and '70s, both as an actress in films such as the acclaimed "Blow-Up," and as the protege to her late ex-husband, legendary French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg. Together they recorded several albums, including the infamously sexy British chart-topper, "Je T'Aime ... Moi Non Plus," banned by the BBC in 1969 for Birkin's erotically explicit sighs.
