Hot Chocolate Nutcracker

It's the Nutcracker like you've never seen it!  Debbie Allen (famous choreographer, Tony Award Nominee and Emmy Award winner) has revamped the holiday classic and given it a new, multicultural look, fantastic modernized music, dance numbers and a fresh new context.  This show is sure to be amazing!  Set in 1950's Harlem, the story takes us on a journey around the world in a dream.  You'll go from Harlem to Egypt to West Africa; from "The Rain Forest" to "The Land of Funk" and "Jazz Land".  Debbie Allen, along with her co-chairs (Quincy Jones, Will & Jada Pinkett Smith and Denzel & Pauletta Washington) are throwing a Gala  performance December 9th.  There will be an additional public performance December 11th at 2pm and 7pm at UCLA Royce Hall.  All ticket information can be found here.  Feel good knowing that 100% of the proceeds will go to benefit the children of the Debbie Allen Dance Academy, a nonprofit organization committed to expanding the reach of dance and theatre arts to enrich, inspire and transform the lives of thousands of people in the Greater Los Angeles Area, across America and around the world.  Shake ya tailfeather and get your tickets now - time is running out!
