Be whisked away with Clara on her magical adventure through the enchanted Land of Sweets in Momentum Dance Maui’s beloved rendition of The Nutcracker! Following a lively party at the Stahlbaum’s annual Christmas gathering filled with dancing, surprises, and gifts, Clara falls asleep beside her new Nutcracker doll and dreams of a fantastical world filled with dancing Snowflakes. She is led to the Land of Sweets where she is greeted by the Sugar Plum Fairy, enchanted by characters from faraway places like China, Spain, Arabia and Russia, and mesmerized by the Waltz of the Flowers and Dew Drop Fairy. After an extraordinary celebration, everyone gathers to say goodbye as Clara journeys back home.


Directed by Kathleen McKeon with her team of talented choreographers–Katie Higuchi, Camille Romero, Jackie Dowsett, and Ali Pineo–this year’s production features a unique storyline written by theater expert Camille Romero and costumed by the illustrious  Kathleen Schulz.  The collaboration between Maui Onstage and Momentum Dance Maui will give Maui’s audiences  the best of theater and dance with new screen projections, set props, and lighting design. Come and enjoy this cast of 60 multi-talented actors and dancers at the Historic Iao Theater. You will leave the theater with a warm holiday memory.
