A Comical Holiday Dance Spoof

By popular demand, ContempraDANCE Theatre’s “Philly Nutt Crak-Up” will be celebrating their 20th season in Manayunk. Join the infamous Rappin SugarPlum Fairy, battling Hip Hoppin Railway Rats, City Hall Dolls, Captain Philadelphia, and Liberty Belle-Anne, as they are sure to amaze audiences with this “nutty” take-off of the classic Nutcracker. Philly Nutt Crak-Up is based on an original rap song written by the SugarPlum Fairy herself. With her, you will travel to the Kingdom of Prussia and witness feats of theatrical entertainment including superheroes, dancing and performances by the Penn’s Angels and our very own Rocky with the South Street Rocky-Ettes. Philly Nutt Crak-Up is filled with references to local Philadelphia places, personalities, foods and skylines, combining comedy, hip-hop, jazz, modern and ballet dance to create a memorable event for our audience.
