Max & Ruby: The Nutcracker Suite
A top Nickelodeon Jr. show, Max & Ruby entertains children around the world with its charming portrayal of bunny life. Disappointed at having to miss a performance of The Nutcracker due to a snowstorm, Max, a wily little boy, and Ruby, his bossy older sister, listen to their grandmother as she recounts the classic story. She tells of how a young girl saves a living nutcracker from an army of mice then traipses with him through a magical land of snow and candy. Captivated, Max and Ruby’s imaginations begin to bring the tale to life, peopling the stage with classic characters such as the elegant Sugar Plum Fairy, the dashing 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 and arabesques into reimagined moves that spring from the youthful bunnies’ minds while Tchaikovsky’s iconic score—featuring the timeless, bell-filled Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy—mixes with the play’s original songs.
Racine Civic Centre
The Racine Civic Centre’s campus sprawls along the shores of Lake Michigan, its three venues bustling with nearly every kind of celebration throughout the year. The strains of symphony concerts often resound through Festival Hall; the neoclassical 1920s-era Memorial Hall conceals eight different spaces behind its imposing stone façade; and warm weather scatters the merriment of assorted festivals and seagull family reunions across the lawn of Festival Park.
