The Stocker Arts Center will host “A 1940’s Nutcracker” performed by Neos Dance Theatre at 11 a.m. on Friday, December 14 (Student Matinee performance), at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 15 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 16 in the Hoke Theatre on Lorain County Community College’s campus.

The Nutcracker comes with great anticipation for children of all ages. Neos Dance Theatre presents the timeless tale as an original production set in Northern Ohio. Neos Dance Theatre’s story takes a twist from the original tale by paying homage to an iconic age of film, fashion, American Christmas traditions, the industrial age and World War II. Neos Dance Theatre’s A 1940s Nutcracker “puts local history into play in a clever and spirited reimagining of Nutcracker. Not satisfied with dancing the steps, they’ve danced a city.” – Cool Cleveland

Tickets range from $15-35, except for the Student Matinee performance, which is $5 per ticket.
