The Nutcracker Twist

This production, a spin on the Tchaikovsky's classic Russian Nutcracker two-act ballet, is presented by Artz 4 Life Academy. Formerly called The Chocolate Nutcracker, this show, over the years, has been a community project consisting of more than 200 children from the Tampa Bay Area.

Artz 4 Life Academy presents and produces this twist on the Christmas classic which begins in a Harlem Renaissance swing setting and takes the audience to Jazzland, Gospeland, Land of Funk Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Bollywood and many more international experiences!

Considered one of the holiday season's best offerings, it is also among the most-loved. Professional, national artists provide a unique 12-week training experience in cultural arts performance and behind-the-scenes production to 150-200 students who show what they've learned in this treat - The Nutcracker Twist!

Tickets are $17, $27 and $37. Groups of 30 or more can save by calling 813.451.4410.
