Nutcracker Suite coming to the Honeywell

Posted: Friday, November 16, 2012

Max & Ruby in the Nutcracker Suite is a musical based on the popular animated cartoon series for children. The performance, sponsored by Ladd Dental Group of Wabash, will arrive at the Honeywell Center on Tuesday, December 4 at 7 p.m.

Max & Ruby bring to life a joyous tradition this holiday season as they take to the stage with a performance inspired by one of the greatest musical scores ever composed, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. It’s a glistening snowy winter evening and Max & Ruby have been anxiously waiting for the most spectacular event of the year: seeing The Nutcracker ballet with their Grandma. But, to their disappointment, a snow storm keeps them at home.

To lift their spirits, their grandmother allows Max & Ruby to each open one gift from under the tree before bedtime. With their new gifts in tow, a robot for Max and a ballerina doll for Ruby, grandma tells the story of The Nutcracker. So vivid is her storytelling that the characters in the ballet come to life right before their very eyes. Max & Ruby marvel at the sight of their enchanting guests, the Sugar Plum Fairy and Nutcracker Prince.

Tickets are $19 for main floor, $14 for balcony, and may be purchased at the box office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday by calling (260) 563-1102 or by visiting www.honeywellcenter.org.
