Are you looking for something a little different to spice up your holiday this year? The Hip Hop Nutcracker is a fresh new take on the classic story. Set to Tchaikovsky's beloved music, this interpretation features a lively cast of world class dancers, DJ, and violinist. The international tour stops in Charleston on December 17th. One of the founders of recorded rap music, Kurtis Blow, is the special guest MC for the this performance. 

In this unique production, Drosselmeyer's magic transports Clara and her Prince to 1980s Brooklyn to witness the moment when Clara's parents first met. The dance work is a celebration of love, and a wonderful way to honor the holiday season. For more information and to order your tickets, visit: North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts
