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
- "A.S. Byatt is a storyteller who could keep a sultan on the edge of his throne for a thousand and one nights." --New York Times Book Review
An intellectually exhilarating story of wit, romance and lush detail, Possession became a national bestseller, perennial book club favorite, and was made into a 2002 film. Her novella Morpho Eugenia, in which she examines the similarities between anthills and 19th century manor households, was made into the 1995 film Angels & Insects.
A self-described greedy reader, Byatt weaves her many interests - biology, history, and philosophy among them - into her work, resulting in books teeming with characters and ideas. Or, as she has stated, novels with "the whole world in them." In her latest work, a deliciously dark short story collection called The Little Black Book of Stories, Byatt continues to mix folk and fairy tales with everyday life in five tales filled with unexpected thrills.
