The Sea Captain’s Nutcracker A Cape Cod Christmas Voyage


Directed by Laura Sciortino and choreographed by world class dancers Catherine Batcheller, Joseph Cipolla, and Laura Sciortino 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 mid-1800’s, the script, written by local author Anne LeClaire, 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 aboard the ship as it 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 Clara. You will be charmed by the Waltz of the Sea Grass and will be thrilled by the Dance of the Icy Winds.The story will take us on an enchanting journey through local history and folklore invoking elements of the natural environs of Cape Cod.
