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.

This was without a doubt the absolute worst theater performance since the beginning of time. This is the crap that dictators force their people to see in the name of culture. The choreography consisted of dancers running around in circles while the audience dies the death of a thousand cuts of boredom...shame to everyone involved in this outrageously amateurish production.
Quotes & Highlights
- "For pure splendour ingrained with soul, Caracalla is an unprecedented joy." --Dance Europe
- "Zayed and the Dream looks sensationally foreign, as thrilling as Mamma Mia, a Wizard of Oz glitter and glamour." --Sunday Express
Zayed and the Dream is the new extravagant theatrical creation by the Caracalla Dance Theatre. History meets art in the legendary story of seven horsemen travelers in the sands of time on a journey in search of the one who will forever leave his mark on the Arabian desert and carve his name as a hero of civilisation. Staring 100 artists with the participation of guest performers from China, Spain, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates.
