By popular demand, ContempraDANCE Theatre’s “Philly Nutt Crak-Up” is back at the Painted Bride in Philadelphia for another season of sheer entertainment. Join the infamous Rappin SugarPlum Fairy, battling Hip Hoppin Rats, City Hall Dolls, Captain Philadelphia and Liberty Belle-Anne, as they are sure to amaze audiences with this “nutty” take-off of the classic Nutcracker. Philly Nutt Crak Up is based on an original rap song written by the SugarPlum Fairy herself. With her, you will travel to the Kingdom of Prussia and witness feats of theatrical entertainment including superheros, kung-fu fighting, dancing and performances by the Penn’s Angels and our very own Rocky with the South Street Rocky-Ettes. “Wonder Woman” will also return this year with super charged battling power to entertain you! “Philly Nutt Crak-Up” is filled with references to local Philadelphia places, personalities, foods and skylines, combining comedy, hip-hop, jazz, modern and ballet dance creating a memorable event for our audience. Philly Nutt Crak-Up features the choreography of critically acclaimed Artistic Director Gail Vartanian as well as renowned hip hop artist from throughout the area. “Philly Nutt Crak-Up” has been featured in Philadelphia Magazine, Dance Magazine, the City Paper, a feature segment on Channel 6 ABC’s Prime Time Weekly show, NBC’s 10 show and Channel 17’s Eye Opener segment. New acts, new faces! Fun for all ages, even your DAD. You don’t want to miss this one!
