Nutcracker (not so) Suite is the spiked punch at an otherwise dry, kid-friendly party, and it’s worth splurging for, like a top-shelf martini.” – Star Tribune

Think you know the Nutcracker? Think again! Spice up the most wonderful time of the year with this cheeky take on a classic tale!

Nutcracker (not so) Suite careens through 1960s New York City as Marie and her egomaniac mother, Mama Flo, prepare to put on the holiday soirée of the season. When the party goes off the rails, Marie’s sassy Barbie and hunky Ken doll spring to life and escort her through an off-kilter dream world. Skewering everything from classical ballet to pop culture personalities, Nutcracker (not so) Suite is the naughty holiday entertainment you didn’t know you needed.

Starring Bradley Greenwald as Mama Flo, Steven Epp as the Uncle, and Myron Johnson as the Rat Queen!

Recommended for ages 14+

About James Sewell Ballet
James Sewell Ballet was founded in New York City by James Sewell and Sally Rousse and brought to Minnesota in 1993. Combining their expertise, vision, and chutzpah, they envisioned a close-knit company of dance artists willing to both challenge their physical limits and expand their notions about ballet. Over two decades later, critically acclaimed JSB performances move and delight audiences across the country. The embodiment of the original vision is a professional company of dancers performing innovative work that explores the technical boundaries of ballet.
