About the Nutcracker

Clara is given an enchanted Nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve. As midnight strikes, she creeps downstairs to find a magical adventure awaiting her and her Nutcracker.

The magician Drosselmeyer transforms the drawing room for a battle between mice and toy soldiers. During the battle, Clara saves the Nutcracker’s life – so breaking a magical spell that turned him from a boy to a toy – and the Mouse King is defeated. In celebration, Drosselmeyer sweeps Clara and the Nutcracker off to the Kingdom of Sweets, where they meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and take part in a wonderful display of dances. The next morning, Clara’s adventures seem to have been more than just a dream.

42nd STREET – Broadway Musical
Jul 7 @ 7:00 pm

The Legendary Broadway Production in HD

One of Broadway’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street, comes to the big screen in the largest ever production of the show. The musical tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.

Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!

Filmed at London’s Theatre Royal the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble. This eye-watering extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.

Runtime: 2 hours 35 minutes

KINKY BOOTS – Broadway Musical
Aug 31 @ 7:00 pm

KINKY BOOTS The Broadway Musical in HD

Filmed at the Adelphi Theatre in London, Kinky Boots the Tony, Grammy & Olivier Award-winning musical from pop icon Cyndi Lauper and legendary playwright Harvey Fierstein, directed and choreography by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell and based on the film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, hits the big screen.

Inspired by true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think. Charlie (played by Olivier Award nominee Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (played by Matt Henry, who won an Olivier Award for the role) is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship.

Runtime: 2 hours 25 minutes

XARA CHORAL THEATRE: RINGS THROUGH WATER
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm

Rings Through Water is new creation that uses ethereal choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, along with powerful text and theatrical presentation, to tell three short stories about water.  

It’s a collaboration between five artists – three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.

Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another? Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered  Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.

MATTHEW BOURNE’S THE RED SHOES
Mar 28 @ 2:00 pm
THE DOUBLE OLIVIER AWARD-WINNING SMASH HIT RETURNS

Based on the film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale

A sell-out for its world premiere in 2016, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant adaptation of the legendary film returns to London, having won two Olivier Awards and dazzled audiences across the UK and the USA.

The Red Shoes is a tale of obsession, possession and one girl’s dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion.

THANK YOU TO OUR STAGE TO SCREEN PARTNER

 

 

Set to the achingly romantic music of golden-age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann, The Red Shoes is orchestrated by Terry Davies and played live by the New Adventures Orchestra, with cinematic designs by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Paul Groothuis.

With Adam Cooper, returning to New Adventures after more than 20 years, and Ashley Shaw, and Dominic North, Liam Mower, Michela Meazza, Glenn Graham and Cordelia Braithwaite set to revive their acclaimed original roles, this intoxicating drama will dazzle your senses and break your heart.
