Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker

Verlaine & McCann Present

December 7th - 28th, 2017 

Featuring LIVE MUSIC performed by a nine-piece jazz orchestra!

Verlaine and McCann's Nutcracker gives the traditional ballet a bawdy makeover.

Land Of The Sweets features top-notch local dance talent from professional companies, opulent custom costuming, original choreography from the classically-trained Lily Verlaine, and new musical arrangements by Jasper McCann, Kate Olson, and Michael Owcharuk.

All your favorite characters will be back, including Lily Verlaine's Sugar Plum Fairy, Tory Peil's "toreadora" Hot Chocolate, the light-juggling magic of Babette La Fave, and the ever-loveable Snowflakes.

This year's production will delight the newcomer and surprise return visitors to the Land of the Sweets. Costume Designer Stephanie Seymour (formerly of Teatro ZinZanni) will add more flourishes to update and embellish the costuming of the show this year, including an all-new bouquet of costumes for our Waltz of Flowers.

Land Of The Sweets will feature all-new musical arrangements inspired by the Tchyaikovsky score, played LIVE by a nine-piece jazz orchestra!

This "rollicking, frolicking, unabashed and uninhibited celebration of the season" (Seattle P.I) and "Best Burlesque- King 5's Best of Western Washington" features an all-star cast from Seattle's Burlesque A-list and some of the finest dancers and jazz musicians in the Pacific Northwest.
