For this production the Plymouth Arts Center is collaborating with the Elite In-Motion Dance Studio, Plymouth. “The Story of the Nutcracker” was adapted by director and playwright Kerrylynn Kraemer from the story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” by E.T.A. Hoffmann. The Ballet Dance is adapted by Elite In-Motion Dance Studio from Tchaikovsky’s ballet “The Nutcracker.”

Once upon a time, many Christmas Eve’s ago, a nutcracker was given to the Stahlbaum children. Enjoy this magical Christmas Tale as the Stahlbaum children listen to Godfather Drosselmeier tell the story about that ‘particular’ nutcracker and the secret that it hides.
