"Clara and the Nutcracker"

Clara and The Nutcracker” is a delightful abbreviated version of the classic holiday tale “The Nutcracker Suite” by E.T.A. Hoffmann, featuring choreography by Royal Ballet’s famous choreographer Sir Peter Wright.  The cast runs the gamut, from youngsters making their stage debut as dancers to advanced accomplished dancers performing en pointe, and all levels in between.  Holt Ballet Conservatory’s “short story” tells the tale of Clara, whose Christmas present of a toy nutcracker solider inspires a magical dream for Clara, and an opportunity for classically trained ballet dancers to showcase and share their carefully crafted talent.  Children will be enchanted and adults will be inspired by this evening to remember!

“It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.”
~ NPR’s Morning Edition

2016 marked the 20th Anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially succesful album Hot.  Originally released in the summer of 1996, Hot was the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable.  Thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations, Hot sold over 1.3 million copies.  In honor of the 20th Anniversary, Squirrel Nut Zippers have crafted a brand new stage show including several leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the band’s unique musical flavor.

“It’s not a reunion, it’s a revival!” commented band leader Jimbo Mathus.  “The band includes cutting edge talent from New Orleans and the songs have been brought to life in an exciting new way.  But most things remain unchanged… An amazing experience for young and old.”
