Strangeloop Theatre presents "The Nutcracker Nightmare" - Be afraid.

See also

In a world where dolls come to life and little children dream of sugar plum fairies, a new evil has emerged from the toy box. It's up to one young girl, a rag doll, a toy soldier and a ballerina mouse to prevent the total destruction of Christmas. Where's the Nutcracker when you need him?

Strangeloop's holiday production provides a sequel to E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic holiday tale, but this time, Marie and the toys face an enemy far worse than mice that threaten to chew up dresses and eat sugar toys — and all without her precious Nutcracker to save them.

Written and directed by Strangeloop company member Maria Burnham, Nutcracker Nightmare runs two nights only: Sunday, December 15, and Monday, December 16, at 8:00 p.m. at Mary's Attic, above Hamburger Mary's. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door or in advance at Brown Paper Tickets.

Tired of all of the happy? Are you the Bah Humbug person this year? Take yourself to Mary's for a beer, then go upstairs and be afraid, be very afraid.
