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.

In a waiting room filled with shelves of old books and skulls, the characters of Myth move across the stage in a purgatory of uncertainty, stalked by dancers in black, representing their shadows. Perched above the action, singer Patrizia Bovi and the Micrologus ensemble perform an ethereal blend of medieval polyphony, serving as a striking counterpoint to the earthly struggles below. A set of large double doors hints at what lies beyond.
