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.

American-born Barak Marshall—son of the great dancer, choreographer and musician Margalit Oved—has become one of Israeli dance’s most explosive artists. He served as the venerable Batsheva Dance Company’s first-ever house choreographer and has gone on to establish an impressive career on his own terms. Set to a score combining elements of Gypsy, Balkan, classical and rock music, Monger is bold, highly emotive physical-theater for 10 dancers. Originally commissioned by the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theater in Tel Aviv, the piece explores themes of power, free will and survival instinct through the story of a group of servants trapped in the basement of their abusive mistress’ home.
