Old City lights the stage with holiday magic in ContempraDANCE Theatre’s “Philly Nutt Crak-Up”, a comical dance-filled spoof of the Nutcracker. Fun for the whole family!
Philly Nutt Crak-Up returns to the Painted Bride! Artistic Director, Gail Vartanian and her infamous Rappin SugarPlum Fairy are back with the battling Hip Hoppin Rats, City Hall Dolls, Captain Philadelphia and Liberty Belle-Anne, for another season of the hilarious holiday dance spoof, “Philly Nutt Crak-Up”. This “nutty” holiday take-off of the classic Nutcracker is based on an original rap song written by the SugarPlum Fairy herself. This theatrical extravaganza is a story filled with superheroes, kung-fu fighting, Penn’s Angels and our very own South Street Rocky-Ettes at the Kingdom of Prussia. “Philly Nutt Crak-Up” is filled with references to local Philadelphia places, personalities, foods and skylines, combining comedy, hip-hop, jazz, modern and ballet dance creating a memorable event for our audience. “ Philly Nutt Crak-Up” has been featured in Philadelphia Magazine, Dance Magazine, the City Paper, a feature segment on Channel 6 ABC’s Prime Time Weekly show and NBC’s 10 show. New acts, new faces! Fun for all ages, even your DAD. You don’t want to miss this one!
