The Debbie Allen Dance Academy, in association with The Annenberg Foundation, presents The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center from December 1, 2022 to December 4, 2022, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the children of the Debbie Allen Dance Academy and the greater Los Angeles community.
It’s Christmas Eve and the Johnsons are having a grand party. The Christmas gifts are shared and young Kara receives a Nutcracker filled with hot chocolate-her favorite. She falls asleep and the journey begins when the Nutcracker comes alive!
Three wise cracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey take over the story. They are the three stooges incarnate from NYC who call themselves “The Real Rat Pack”. They go to many new lands of wonder: Candy Cane Land, Egypt, the Indian Rainforest/Bollywood, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. With dazzling choreography, music and costumes, this is a holiday theater experience that all ages will enjoy.
Debbie Allen has taken the traditional ballet and has given it a new context, fresh lively characters, new music and spectacular dancing to bring a vibrant, unforgettable theater experience for all ages to enjoy.
School performances will be on November 30th, December 1st and December 2nd. The show runs for 90 minutes.
