The Naughty Nutcracker By Fleur De Tease
The Naughty Nutcracker by Fleur De Tease retells the story of Clara, whose favorite Christmas toy, the Nutcracker, comes alive and, after defeating the evil Rat King in battle, takes her away through the sparkling snow to the land of the sweets, ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy. Since this is a burlesque show, the story does not quite follow the classic story line, but adds some contemporary twists for grown-ups and includes some new characters.
Little, not so innocent Clara (Corey Mack), takes the audience on a wild journey exploring some of the rather naughty aspects of the human condition. The spectacular show features amazing costumes, steamy choreography, creative props and astonishing aerial routines. The naughty nutcracker (Madame Mystere) treats the audience with an unforgettable performance which will never let you look at the classic wood toy the same way.
There was also the Rat King (Ooops the Clown) who does not get stabbed, but actually loses a lot more in this version. Chinese Tea (Ariana Amour) gave a very emotional performance. The Sugar Plum Fairy is played by artistic director Trixie Minx herself. The Nutcracker has almost become a tradition for Fleur De Tease. This is at least the fourth time they have put on the show for the holidays. Most of the performers are trained ballet dancers, so they all basically “grew up” doing the classic holiday play, explained Emily Conelly with Trixie Minx Productions.
