Nightmare Before the Nutcracker


Based on the classic story of ‘The Nutcracker,’ NIGHTMARE BEFORE THE NUTCRACKER returns to the Rio Theatre for a second year for four nights on December 4-5 and 11-12. This gothic reimagination is a unique twist on the beloved fable as told through the music of Tchaikovsky and Danny Elfman, and features characters from both ‘The Nutcracker’ and your favourite Tim Burton films.

Sugarplum fairies, or evil trick-or-treaters?
Dream guide, or Betelgeuse?
This dramatic comedy reimagination is full to the sparkling brim with burlesque, circus, music, and theatre.

Get ready. Christmas will never be the same…
