The Rock School for Dance Education

Celebrate the holiday season with the entire family as The Rock School for Dance Education presents the enchanting, dynamic, and magical Nutcracker 1776. Uniquely blending Tchaikovsky’s score and the traditional Nutcracker story with Revolutionary-era Philadelphia aesthetics, Nutcracker 1776 takes audiences on a journey through battling mice, swirling snow and mountains of candies and features a cast of young international and local ballet prodigies portrayed as soldier mice, magical fairies, and founding fathers. Under the artistic direction of Bojan Spassoff and Stephanie Wolf Spassoff, this exciting 70-minute production is suitable for families and children of all ages.

"This is my entire family’s favorite Nutcracker [production] of the season. We wouldn’t miss it.” – Ed, Bucks County, PA

Nutcracker 1776 will be performed at the Merriam Theater (250 S Broad Street), in the heart of Philadelphia’s theater district, on Friday, December 16, 2016 at 7:00 PM and Saturday, December 17, 2016 at 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM. Ticket prices are $50, $40, and $30 [additional fees may apply]. Purchase tickets here or call Ticket Philadelphia at 215-893-1999. Discounted tickets are available for groups of 10 or more.

“The Rock School kids are world class artists, and the production shows it. It is truly spectacular to see such amazing up-and-coming talent.” – Robert Colby, BalletX
