This year’s contemporary reimagining of the classic Nutcracker story experiences a circus of mix-ups in a fun for the whole family adventure! A holiday sleepover turns into a trip to the North Pole on the Circus Express and favorite holiday characters join the shenanigans to share in the gift of giving. This is definitely not the usual “Nutcracker.”
This year, the new building will be an added feature with a trampoline and tramp wall act that have never before been seen at NECCA, as well as German wheel, aerial silks, contortion, trapeze, and unicycling.
Special guest performers are Ernesto Lea Place and Caitlin Quinn, professional ballet dancers turned aerial straps artists, who will grace the stage with top-flight aerials alongside their stunning dance moves. Quinn hails from Georgia and won a spot in the NY finals of the Youth American Grand Prix in dance. Lea Place is originally from Buenos Aires and alongside his solo work has paired with Quinn for a professional career that included Nashville Ballet, Minnesota Ballet, Ballet San Antonio, and Fort Wayne Ballet.
The “Flying Nut Express” offers five shows only, December 15 to 17, at 10 Town Crier Drive. Tickets are on sale now at www.necenterforcircusarts.org. For more information call (802) 254-9780.
