House Theatre’s The Nutcracker
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2013
THE HOUSE THEATRE OF CHICAGO presents
“Do not fear the darkness, Clara!”
ALL AGES EVENT!
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! The House Theatre of Chicago, the company behind such magnificent shows as DEATH & HARRY HOUDINI, THE MAGIC PARLOUR and THE CROWNLESS KING, triumphantly ring in the holiday season with a remount of their critically-acclaimed, completely re-imagined adaptation of THE NUTCRACKER! A number of you attended this show in previous years — let’s go ahead and make it a tradition!
The House’s fantastical deconstruction of this holiday classic centers on Clara’s journey to save her family from the Rat King before Christmas, with the help of a Nutcracker, a gift from her beloved Uncle Drosselmeyer. What unfolds is a heartwarming holiday story that weaves together riveting dialogue, astonishing puppetry, beautiful song and spellbinding spectacle to tell a darkly moving story of magic and mystery.
JUSTIN SAYS: This re-imagining of THE NUTCRACKER takes the beloved children’s classic and turns it on its ear into something truly exceptional. It is rare for a theater show to make you feel like a kid again, and this show packs a punch with its wonder, whimsy and, yes, even pathos. Come see why this show has been such a crowd-pleaser for five years in a row!
