Max & Ruby in the Nutcracker Suite
He might not say much, but Max is a three-and-a-half-year-old ball of chaos. His older sister, Ruby, on the other hand, likes following the rules almost as much as she likes making them. It’s Christmas Eve, and the house is filled with the smell of Grandma’s gingerbread cookies, when a great-big package from their great-uncle Drosselmeyer appears on the front steps. Not even Ruby can resist the urge to tear the wrapping paper off right away. As she rifles through the giant present, Grandma reads the story of The Nutcracker—and Max and Ruby can’t help but notice that their new toys include toy soldiers, brightly-colored fairies, and even a shiny new nutcracker of their own. Soon enough, it’s off to bed, but the pint-sized pair are still giddy with visions of tap-dancing candy canes and twirling ballerinas. Their imaginations soon people the stage with classic characters such as the Sugar Plum Fairy, the nutcracker prince, and the set-changing stagehand whose father never let him dance.
Original choreography by ballet veteran Patti Caplette transforms The Nutcracker’s classic pirouettes into moves that spring from the bunnies’ minds while Tchaikovsky’s iconic score—featuring the timeless, bell-filled “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”—mixes with original songs. A top Nickelodeon Jr. show, Max & Ruby has entertained children around the world with its portrayal of bunny life for more than a decade, and its live stage show only adds to its magical charm.

About Lowell Memorial Auditorium
Founded to commemorate local US veterans, Lowell Memorial Auditorium's imposing, neoclassical exterior is ringed with inscriptions immortalizing famous generals and pivotal battles throughout the years, including Bunker Hill, Gettysburg, and San Juan Hill. The venue's history hasn't been all serious, however—in its early years, shortly after Word War I, its most popular event was the weekly Bingo game, which often attracted up to 3,000 participants and prompted Life to call Lowell a "natural Bingopolis." The decades following saw everything from conventions and civic affairs to performances by Benny Goodman and the Golden Gloves boxing tournament. By 1979 the building was so worn down from floods, hurricanes, and economic depression that it necessitated a major renovation to bring it into the modern era. Today, its stage is fit for Broadway-scale shows, the behind-the-stage balcony is gone, and air conditioning protects against summer heat and litigious snowmen.
