Jersey City Nutcracker

Nimbus Dance’s beloved Jersey City Nutcracker is back, and high on the list of must-see Jersey City holiday experiences! Presented at the new Nimbus Arts Center, Nimbus Dance will offer 13 performances of the quirky and lovable adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s timeless classic, which takes place in Jersey City and weaves together themes of magic, adventure, family, and friendship.

The highly acclaimed Nimbus Dance performs against a dazzling backdrop of full-scale sets and fantastical projections of illustrated scenes. Audiences are transported across the city – through parks, lively avenues, deserted alleyways, sewers (for an epic battle scene!) and back to the City Hall, with surprises, cheer, and a message of hope and resilience along the way.

Choreographed by Samuel Pott, with animated scenic projections by Jersey City-based video artists, Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger, and a delightful libretto co-written by Alysia Souder and Samuel Pott, Jersey City Nutcracker takes audiences on a magical shopping-cart-turned-sleigh-ride with twists and turns the whole family will enjoy!

Jersey City Nutcracker draws together a cast of Nimbus’ professional company dancers, 100+ youth from all over Jersey City, and local celebrities to present an unforgettable holiday experience. Debuting in the youth lead roles of Maria and Chris/Christina are Izzy Baculod (McNair High School), Jadyn Mayo (Valley View Middle School), Chelsea Mugambe (High Tech High School), Beta Vino (All Saints Episcopal Day School), &  Nola Walker (Snyder High School).

Attendees can expect wholesome (albeit, a little wacky!) holiday fun with artisan gift vendors, holiday art market, and more!
