Crazy New Version of the Nutcracker Tale Features Elvis  and Rock ’n’ Roll Music & Dancing! 

Corbin McCann as Elvis Presley singing “Jailhouse Rock”

The classic tale of The Nutcracker gets a new twist in Rockin’ Nutcracker –  coming to area stages in November! Rock out with dancers of all styles during  Rockin’ Nutcracker, the classic tale with a few twists! A Robot Nutcracker turns into Elvis – “The King” instead of a prince, and the classical music is changed to classic rock and roll, from Queen to Springsteen, and Santana to Steppenwolf!  This family-friendly event in November will have you dancing in your seats! 

Get your groove on with amazing swing, belly dance, ballroom, and Latin dancers performing to the boss music of Bob Seger, ZZ Top, Pat Benatar, and others. Audiences, cheer for your fave dancers during the Disco versus Rock ‘n’  Roll Dance Off! Corbin McCann as the Robot Nutcracker/Elvis and Shelly Ray as  Chiara (a modern Clara) are featured, along with a cool cast of dancers, including Troupe Sidysaan, Luciana Da Silva, Katie Estes, and the Gypsy Queens, and more!
