A Christmas pantomime at MAP mima

A tradition remixed

Usually performed as a ballet, the Nutcracker tells the story of Clara who is gifted a toy nutcracker by her uncle Drosselmyer at the family’s Christmas Eve party. Upon going to sleep on Christmas Eve the Nutcracker springs to life taking Clara on a magical journey through toyland, the land of snow, the land of sweets and the dream time before returning to her bedroom on Christmas morning. Was it a dream?


The twist

The Nutcracker Remixed has a twist. Our story is told with modern Christmas songs, comedic chipmunks as our narrators and loads of laughs, upbeat performances and Christmas Cheer. Our cast features both professional performers and children learning performing arts from across Lake Macquarie ranging in age from 6 years to adult.

The Nutcracker Remixed is sponsored by Lake Macquarie City Council.
