Cracked Nuts: Camper than Christmas

10 November @ 8:00 pm - 11 November @ 10:00 pm


The Glitterbomb Dancers


Yorkshire’s very own Glitterbomb Dancers present their debut, full length Christmas Show: a cabaret remake of the family classic, The Nutcracker.  Sugar plum fairies, toy soldiers and snowflakes…  with a drag comedy twist!

This alternative holiday show combines all the festive fun of the original ballet with the Glitterbomb Dancers’ signature playfulness.  Expect a high energy mix of classical music and pop songs, performed with high kicks and splits.  A bit of camp, a bit of punk, a little bit of crass and a whole lot of sass, this is The Nutcracker like you’ve never seen it before!
