By popular demand, ContempraDANCE Theatre’s “Philly Nutt Crak-Up” returns to the Avenue of the Arts for its 15th year in Philadelphia for another season of sheer entertainment. Join the infamous Rappin SugarPlum Fairy, battling Hip Hoppin Railway Rats, City Hall Dolls, Captain Philadelphia and Liberty Belle-Anne, as they are sure to amaze audiences with this "nutty" take-off of the classic Nutcracker. Philly Nutt Crak Up is based on an original rap song written by the SugarPlum Fairy herself.
