A top Nick Jr. show, Max and Ruby entertains children around the world with its charming portrayal of whimsically drawn bunnies. Disappointed at having to miss a performance of The Nutcracker due to a snowstorm, Max, a wily younger brother, and Ruby, his bossy older sister, listen to their grandmother as she recounts the classic story of a young girl who saves a living nutcracker from an army of mice, and traipses with him through a magical land of snow and candy. Captivated by the story, Max and Ruby’s vivid 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 numbers that spring from the youthful bunnies' minds. Tchaikovsky's iconic score—featuring the timeless, bell-filled “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”—mixes with the play’s original songs, keeping kids enraptured throughout the show's 70-minute runtime.
