A Nutcracker Panto

$14/Students and Seniors
Please note our updated COVID Protocols here.
Theater in the Open is happy to be back at the Firehouse for our production of A Nutcracker Panto, written by Edward F. Speck and adapted from the classic holiday ballet. Presented in the traditional British panto style, this holiday send-up is a family friendly romp through Clara’s adventure with the Nutcracker, the battle with the Rat King, and more than likely a Tik Tok dance trend. Holiday Pantos with Theater in the Open are a tradition in Newburyport, and we are excited to bring back an in-person panto for the first time since December of 2019. Join us!
Audience members of Theater in the Open’s “A Nutcracker Panto!” are encouraged to bring toiletries, canned soups, and other non-perishable items along to the performance; you even get to go up on stage to put them under Clara’s tree for The Pettengill House in Salisbury!
Here are some suggested “Most Needed” items for the food pantry that are frequently in short supply:
* Children’s healthy snacks – Some examples include Nutri-bars, kid’s fruit snacks, kid’s healthy fruit cups, granola breakfast bars, etc.
* Another category families are always in need of are toiletries, all the personal care items we take for granted such as toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, body wash, shampoo, deodorant, etc.
*The Pettengill House serves so many families with small children, diapers are always a big need (especially the larger sizes 4, 5, 6 and pull-ups) along with baby wipes. Some other items include facial tissue, paper towels, laundry soap, dish soap, plastic utensils, paper plates, cups, can openers.
