The Invincible Czars' Dance-It-Yourself Nutcracker
Austin's Invincible Czars pack all the fun, hilarity and musicality they can into this year's Dance-It-Yourself Nutcracker. With props, dancers and lights in tow, the band leads kids young and old through their whimsical version of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite dancing all the way. The Invincible Czars have turned the music from America's favorite ballet on its head jumping all over the musical map. Two step to a countrified "Miniature Overture", and waltz to a swinging "Waltz of the Flowers" and spin to the psychedelic "Sugar Plum Faerie."
Tired of the same old holiday songs? This is Christmas music for people who don't like Christmas music! The band has also re-made other carols in their own image. Songs like "O Little of Bethlehem" (Arabian stomp) and "Chestnuts Roasting on and Open Fire" (spooky Sci-Fi) are barely recognizable.
As always, audience members are encouraged to dress for success with prizes going to the best holiday outfit/costume/props (boy, girl and adult).
