The Nutcracker: Reimagined Up North

Event Details
Presented by

We are excited to announce the world premiere of The Crooked Tree Arts Center School of Ballet's Nutcracker 2020!  Nutcracker 2020 is a full-length performance that you, your friends, and family will be able to view in the safety and comfort of home, anywhere in the world, or on the big screen at the Great Lakes Center for the Arts on December 19 at 3 PM! 

Nutcracker 2020 reimagines the classic Nutcracker story - all set at your favorite Northern Michigan landmarks. 

This spectacular performance brings all of your favorite scenes and characters from Nutcracker to modern-day Northern Michigan while still enchanting and delighting children of all ages.  Clara and Fritz evade their parents during a shopping trip in Petoskey's Gaslight District and find a quaint shop where Clara is gifted the magical nutcracker doll.  The impish Fritz becomes jealous of Clara's gift, as little brothers across the land tend to do, and breaks the doll.  Clara and her friends seek revenge on naughty Fritz and his buddies during a furious battle at the Clock Tower.  Clara makes her way to the break wall in a stunning solo performance that ends with her disappearance into a world of fantasy and magic.  Here, she is reunited with her cherished nutcracker doll, and embarks on adventures including cavorting with Water Sprites under the waves of Lake Michigan, tumbling with Petoskey Stones on the beach, and playing in the forest with Wood Nymphs.  And so much more! You won't want to miss this unique and enchanting performance!
