The Nutcracker comes with great anticipation for children of all ages. Neos Dance Theatre presents the timeless tale as an original production: A 1940s Nutcracker, 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 WWII. Look for local participants and students from the new Neos Center for Dance throughout the ballet! 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 http://www.neosdancetheatre.org.
