The Sea Captain’s Nutcracker

November 14, 2010

November 20 @ 2p.m. and 6:30p.m.

Tilden Arts Center, Cape Cod Community College, 2240 Iyannough Rd, West Barnstable

Turning Pointe Dance Studio: 508-444-0278


On November 20th, 2010 Turning Pointe Dance Studio of Falmouth will present The Sea Captain’s Nutcracker at the Tilden Arts Center in Barnstable at 2:00PM and 6:30PM. 

Now in it’s 8th season, 
The Sea Captain’s Nutcracker has become a Cape Cod holiday tradition. 

Originally conceived and choreographed by world class dancers Catherine Batcheller and Joseph Cipolla and directed with additional choreography by Laura Faria Sciortino of Turning Pointe Dance Studio, with set and costume designs by London stage designer Jean Marc Puissant, this production is an innovative version of the classic holiday favorite. 

Set in a Chatham Sea Captain’s home in the late 1800’s, the script, written by local authors Anne LeClaire and Donna Smith, will take us on an enchanting journey through local history and folklore invoking elements of the natural environs of Cape Cod. The heroic battle scene takes place shipboard as the ship is attacked by mooncussers off the coast of Eastham and a swift and violent storm off Monomoy Point threatens the voyage. The salty old Sea Captain replaces the traditional Drosselmeyer character. Having sailed the high seas, he returns home to Chatham bearing exotic gifts for young Clara. Audiences will be charmed by the Waltz of The Sea Grass and will thrill to the Dance of the Icy Winds. The audience will be still delighted by the original Nutcracker score composed by Tchaikovsky but only this time with a magical Cape Cod twist.

Turning Pointe Dance Studio at (508)444-0278. 
Discounted group rates are also available

Tickets: $30/Reserved Seating, $20/General Admission, $15/Child or Student
