Nutcracker: Krakatuk is the adapted origin story of E.T.A. Hoffmann's hero, the Nutcracker. When Madam Mouserinks suffers a terrible loss at the hands of Drosselmeier, she takes vengeance on the arrogant King and Queen by uglifying Princess Pirlipat. Can Drosselmeier and the Royal Astronomer find the hard nut Krakatuk in time to save the princess? With a cast of larger-than-life characters, Krakatuk is a delightful exploration of Hoffmann's zany world. Offering a fun and fantastic menagerie of roles to thrill, inspire, and stretch a flexibly-sized cast, Krakatuk is a holiday tradition in the making!
