In this adaptation – written, directed and choreographed by Emmy Award-winner Debbie Allen – three laugh-out-loud wise-cracking rats take over the classic tale. They whisk audiences off on an adventure to Toyland, Candy Cane Land, the Rainforest, Bollywood, Egypt, and the South Pole, as well as a magical train ride choreographed by Tony Award-winner Savion Glover. Presented by the Debbie Allen Dance Academy in association with The Annenberg Foundation, this three-time winner for the Nutty Award (Goldstar’s National Nutcracker Award) stars Raven Symone, Carlo Imperato, Debbie Allen, and Mathew Johnson, with Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen, and James Ingram among those contributing to its original score. A special star-studded gala performance will be done on Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. featuring guest appearances by Jenifer Lewis, Nigel Lythgoe, Shemar Moore, Savion Glover, Taylour Paige, and Phylicia Rashad and it’ll be followed by a V.I.P. party hosted by Jesse Williams. Gala tickets start at $350. To purchase tickets please call 310-202-1711.
