From Traditional Ballet & Ballet Folklorico to Contemporary
A spin off of the nutcracker, “It’s a San Antonio Christmas!” is a dance production about a quincañera, Clarissa, celebrating her birthday on Christmas Eve. Wishing her bestie/cousin in the military could attend to support this symbolic party of transitioning to a young woman, Clarissa ignores everyone at her party. When she receives la ultima muñeca (her last doll as a young girl), Clarissa shoos everyone away. Distracted by these events, she is surprised by the sight of rats and faints into a dreamland where she is kidnapped by the Rat Queen. She is rescued by the Nutcracker and is inspired by the strong female characters and discovers what it means to become a young woman and the true meaning of Christmas.
Held at the Jo Long Theater - Carver Cultural Center. Tickets available for purchase through the Carver Box Office and TicketMaster. The Carver Box Office will accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
