About Nutcracker - The Tuff Nutt Club

★★★★ - "A Christmas dream of love that goes with a swing" - The Guardian

★★★★ - “It’s Nutcracker, dance fans, but not as we know it. Heaps of Fun” - The Times

★★★★ - "Drew McOnie’s new spin on Christmas classic The Nutcracker has a cabaret setting and a warm heart." - The Independent

★★★★ - “London’s first Nutcracker of the season is clever, cute and compact as a Terry’s chocolate orange.” - Evening Standard

Diving into the glittering winter wonderland head on, McOnie Company dancers perform to Tchaikovsky’s world famous score, reimagined for an onstage Jazz band by multi-award winning jazz artist Cassie Kinoshi. It's Christmas eve and Clive is home alone, waiting for his dad who is working late as usual. But when the Sugarplum fairy and a new toy spring to life, Clive is transported on a wild-spirited adventure filled with a host of dreamlike characters. As Clive embarks on a glittering journey of self acceptance, this Christmas turns out to be the most magical of all.

Packed with hope, heart and humour, this Nutcracker is for anyone who wants to live life in full technicolour - it’s playful, mischievous and a lot of fun.

Cast includes: Amonik Melaco (Action Man), Sam Salter (Clive) and Patricia Zhou (Sugarplum) with Chanelle Anthony, Christie Crosson, Tim Hodges, Lukas Hunt and Rachel Muldoon.

Directed and choreographed by Olivier Award winner Drew McOnie, Nutcracker is composed by Cassie Kinoshi with additional music by Rio Kai, with venue and set design by Soutra Gilmour, costume design by Ryan Dawson Laight, music supervision by Benjamin Kwasi Burrell, lighting design by Joshie Hariette, sound design by Simon Baker and casting by Will Burton CDG.

Late Show tickets include exclusive access to Nutcracker Nights from December onwards! Thursday to Saturday, join us after the show when the Tuff Nutt Jazz Club comes alive with an additional hour of live jazz music. The bar is open, the music live and the dance floor ready. There are also Late Shows on Sunday 3, Sunday 10 and Sunday 17 December.

Top-price tickets are sold in pairs, as these are cabaret tables. Table tickets include pre-show table service, so that you can arrive early and enjoy the Tuff Nutt Jazz Club without leaving your seat.

Unfortunately, the show is longer able to offer British Sign Language interpretation for these performances. The only words spoken are in a short poem at the end, and you can request a printed version of this from the ticket desk.

Audio Description is available during the performances on Sunday 19 and Sunday 26 November, and Wednesday 20 December.
