Duke Ellington's Jazz Nutcracker [2016]

Artistic director, Michele Xiques, choreographed this delightful, intriguing rendition of the production that incorporates the arts of ballet and jazz into Clara’s fantastical dream. The Jazz Nutcracker is graced with all of the fanciful characters in the original classic, but the roles are changed and a few surprise guests arrive along the way. This engaging local production includes a variety of twists and turns, and wonderful surprises as Clara, her father and friends travel through a whimsical journey filled with drama, suspense, laughter, and fun and, of course, dancing. This is a one-of-a-kind holiday celebration not to miss. Don’t miss out on this great dinner theatre opportunity and to enjoy a special holiday production with Milford’s Smooth Sound Dance Band live performance during dinner. - Milford Chronicle
