Nutcracker & The Mouse King – The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory
The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory is proud to present Nutcracker & The Mouse King as you’ve never seen it before. There’s not a sugarplum fairy in sight in this new family comedy version of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s holiday classic. The Factory adapts the magical tale using the fun, interactive conventions of a British pantomime. The “panto” is a participatory form of musical comedy designed for families and commonly performed during the Christmas and New Year season. From a seven-headed mouse king to Dame Drosselmeier (sporting an official “Hampden Hon” beehive hairdo) and the chance for audience members — that’s you! — to fight alongside the Nutcracker, The Factory’s take on this crowd-pleasing classic is truly a unique holiday treat not to be missed.
Performances every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Dec 6 – 22
