Description

The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker centers around Kara Johnson, a young spirit-filled girl who receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate for the holidays. Falling into a deep sleep, Kara embarks on a mystical, magical journey, from Candy Cane Lane to the Land of the Kimono Dolls to Bollywood. Three wisecracking rats narrate the story: Harvey (Carlo Imperato), Schmink (Jaleel White) and Buckey (Ms. Allen herself). With an original score by Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen, James Ingram, Shiamak Davar, Tena Clark and Thump, The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker is sure to be a hit with audiences of all ages.
