Dance-Along Nutcracker® — December 2014

Aloha!

Welcome to Dance-Along Nutcracker® 2014 – Frosty’s Hawaiian Holiday!

Hailed as “Best Bets for Holiday Dance” by the SF Chronicle, the Dance-Along Nutcracker® is one of San Francisco’s most endeared holiday events! Exemplifying San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band’s mission, for 29 years, the Dance-Along Nutcracker® has been bringing together the community with a show that takes children, families, couples and singles on a magical holiday journey. This year’s fun-filled, zany dance-along concert will take the audience on a musical excursion to a tropical paradise – so grab your tutu and your lei – we’re heading to Hawaii!

Frosty’s Hawaiian Holiday

Grass skirts, palm trees, tropical breezes and snowmen????
With a blend of favorites from Tchaikovsky’s classic Nutcracker and sweet Hawaiian tunes – celebrate the holidays “island style” at Frosty’s Hawaiian Holiday! Join Clara, Fritz and the entire Stahlbaum clan on the snow-white sands of Hawaii as their holiday escapade takes them in search of Frosty the Snowman….in the tropical sun. Once Uncle Drosselmeyer’s magical gifts are turned loose, it’s up to the kids to save the day. Full of impromptu delight and hilarious surprises, Frosty’s Hawaiian Holiday is must-see for any wallflower!

Bring the kids to a daytime show or treat yourself to the Tropical Gala, and enjoy one of San Francisco’s most beloved and unique holiday traditions.

So Sugar Plum wannabes, pull on your tutus because everyone’s a prima ballerina at the Dance-Along Nutcracker, where you boogie to the beat of your own ballet. Bring your best hula moves; as melodic island spirit fills the air, you’ll be wishing everyone a Mele Kalikimaka in no time.
