MANSFIELD - The Nutcracker comes with great anticipation for families and children of all ages. Neos Dance Theatre presents a timeless tale as an original production: A 1940’s Nutcracker, set in Mansfield, Ohio. Neos Dance Theatre’s story takes a twist from the original tale by paying homage to an iconic age of film, fashion, American Christmas traditions, the industrial age, and WWII. This unique musical includes scenes that would have taken place in such locations as the Women’s Club, Kingwood Center Gardens, Malabar Farm and the Ohio Theatre. Look for local participants and members of the Mansfield Academy of Ballet throughout the ballet! Neos Dance Theatre’s A 1940s Nutcracker “puts local history into play in a clever and spirited reimagining of Nutcracker. Not satisfied with dancing the steps, they’ve danced a city.” At the same time, this version stays true to the original plot line and the Tchaikovsky score. “A 1940s Nutcracker” tells the story of Marie, who falls for her family’s next-door neighbor, Johnny. Her father surprises the family during a party by returning home from the war on Christmas Eve. He gives Marie a gift, a nutcracker. Much of the play deals with a dream Marie has that night. She and Johnny take a tour of 1940s Mansfield.
