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.

Lucy Guerin adroitly reflects the word salad offered by the ominous-sounding "MESSAGE FROM THE CENTER" program notes. I say "word salad" in that the "MESSAGE" manages to convey no precise meaning, though it is obviously trying REALLY HARD to communicate something, "Particularly explored in Weather, are the naturally occurring forces that exist outside of the realms of human control, and our DIRECT IMPACT upon the elemental properties that govern the natural world order". What I saw at the performance

On the Royce terrace prior to each performance, join the UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Studies for an interactive presentation. Members of the department’s Climate Systems Interactions Group Baird Langenbrunner and Daniel Dauhajre will help you explore, from a scientific perspective, both the poetic manifestations of weather and the literal interactions between humans and the forces of nature.
