Seating Options

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.<p>

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. <p>

Androscoggin Bank Colisée

Sure, Androscoggin Bank Colisée is home to the Portland Pirates—but that’s not all. More than high-school hockey, public skating, concerts, and even professional hockey, the Colisée is home to history. Completed in 1959, the arena has had more than half a century to amass its share of tales. Teams from the old Maine Nordiques to the Boston Celtics have made the center their base, but the arena’s greatest brush with national attention probably came in 1965, when it hosted the fight between Muhammad Ali and Sonny Liston. The iconic image of Ali taunting his fallen opponent is one of the most famous in sports history, despite the fact that it doesn’t feature the Colisée’s comfortable Baxter Lounge. <p>
