The Nutty Nutcracker

Choreography by John McFall Unchoreographed by the Atlanta Ballet Dancers, Music by Tchaikovsky and some other people. Rated PG-13

Where else would you see Go-Go Dancers, Batman and Robin, the Crocodile, Tinkerbell, Dracula, a mummy, random skiers, rappers, sharks, and old men racing in walkers? Only Atlanta Ballet’s The Nutty Nutcracker can bring all the high finks together in one wild evening. Last year’s premiere performance was such fun (and a success) that we have brought it back. And we’re not quite sure what you’re going to see this year. But it is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. Nutcracker will never be the same.
