DECEMBER 14-22, 2018 

Nutcracker Burlesque turns 16! So before we emancipate ourselves and start a new holiday tradition next year, we invite you to join us with the story that began it all. That’s right! This year we reprise the original Nutcracker Burlesque tale. Clara and her boyfriend Hans are attending their office holiday party at a local bar. Unfortunately for Hans, this happens to be the bar where his fling on the side works. Can Hans keep up the juggling act, or will his ruse crash and burn? Will Clara’s friend convince her to dump the two-timer and meet Drosselmeyer? Can Drosselmeyer use his magic to open Clara’s eyes? Only time will tell.

Tues. - Sat. December 18th - 22nd, 7:30pm

At St. Lawrence Arts, 76 Congress St., Portland
