“Warm, kind, moving, inclusive … and wholly original… A splendidly empowering Christmas story.”—_Chicago Tribune _

Description

_The Nutcracker _

book by Phillip Klapperich and Jake Minton

music by Kevin O’Donnell

lyrics by Jake Minton

based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffman

Not-your-father’s Nutcracker, this fresh take on the holiday classic was created by The House Theatre of Chicago, the award-winning team who created our critically acclaimed The Sparrow (presented by Stoneham Theatre in 2009).

Adapted from the original tale by E.T.A. Hoffman, with live music from a 4-piece band.

About the Ticket Supplier: Stoneham Theatre

Stoneham Theatre seeks to engage the communities of the Metro North region in the exploration of their common human experience through the production of vital and affecting theatre by established and emerging playwrights, the offering of comprehensive youth education programs and ongoing community outreach initiatives.

Stoneham Theatre is a cultural gathering place dedicated to strengthening community through live theatre and education. Shared stories satisfy a vital human need for connection and link us to a broader world. We produce exceptional professional theatre that invites everyone, whether they have attended theatre in the past or not, to experience this connection in a welcoming, warm environment. In addition, we further the art of live theatre by dedicating a portion of our season to new or rarely performed work. Through our educational programs, we help young people achieve excellence in the performing arts and become engaged and active members of society.
