Hamilton, N.Y. – On Saturday, December 14th at 7pm, follow Breadcrumbs Productions through the three floors of the historic Palace Theater (19 Utica Street, Hamilton NY 13346) for an immersive re-telling of the classic Nutcracker story.
Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is a wild retelling of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic Nutcracker story, set within a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution. Through contemporary movement, vocal and instrumental music, soundscape, and light, we are transported into Marie's world, and the boundary between imagination and reality blends irreversibly while political, familial, and mental unrest grows to a climax for the young woman and her country.
Audience members experience multiple points of view as the story tumbles towards conclusion, all the while discovering hidden scenes and clues through their exploration of the world. This show gives the audience the chance to experience not only the story, but the Palace Theater, in unique and unexpected ways.
Tickets are $20. Recommended for ages 10 and up. For further information or to purchase tickets, visit artsatthepalace.org or call 315.824.1420.
