SJCT Family Theatre: The Nutcracker and the Mouse King – November 22 – November 24

Nutcracker and Mouse KingThis holiday musical features singing, dancing (even a few “rap” moves) and dialogue, making for a more fantastical twist to the classic Tchaikovsky ballet.

Director Penelope Haskew will be looking to cast 40 to 50 island youngsters in grades kindergarten through sixth grade as well as about10 adults (primarily parents) for this latest edition of SJCT’s Family Theatre.

The play reaches back to the original E.T.A. Hoffman book explaining how the Prince was long ago turned into the Nutcracker who later magically saves Clara from the evil Mouse King. All of the classic characters make an appearance, from Clara’s mysterious godfather to her annoying younger brother, Fritz, to the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Land of Sweets.

This is the second time Penelope has brought a twist on a classic to the stage. Last year, she directed Shakespeare’s Macbeth, featuring kids, adults and dancing and singing. “I think this is a fun way to introduce something classic to the kids, so they can appreciate it more when they get older,” said Penelope.
