I come to you today bearing holiday joy! And a giveaway!
I’ve been so excited to partner this year with Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to bring you free tickets to a litany of different performances. Today’s giveaway is for The Hip Hop Nutcracker, which will be showing December 11th and 12th–that’s this Tuesday and Wednesday!
Here’s what you need to know about this fun performance:
A holiday mash-up for the entire family, The Hip Hop Nutcracker, a contemporary re-imagination of Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, sets out on a fourth national tour following the success of three previous sold-out tours.The Hip Hop Nutcracker with Guest MC Kurtis Blow, is an evening-length production performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, DJ and violinist. Through the spells cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer, Maria-Clara and her Nutcracker prince travel back in time to the moment when her parents first meet in a nightclub. Digital scenery transforms E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story of sugarplums into 1980s Brooklyn. The Hip Hop Nutcracker celebrates love, community, and the magic of New Year’s Eve.
The Hip Hop Nutcracker is directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, artistic director of the Brooklyn based theatrical hip-hop dance company Decadancetheatre. It was adapted to contemporary New York City by Mike Fitelson, executive director of United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA) and includes hip-hop interludes remixed and reimagined by DJ Boo as well as an on-stage electric violinist.
Now, this is a flash giveaway, so make sure you share as much as you possibly can between now and when the giveaway ends on Monday at 12a! (So effectively, the last day to enter will be Sunday.) Sharing lots will ensure you get maximum entries.
You’ll also notice that you can subscribe to the Femme Frugality newsletter for entries. I highly encourage this as I happen to have another Pittsburgh Cultural Trust giveaway in the pipes, and email subscribers will receive a reminder directly in their inbox.
If you don’t win–don’t worry! You can purchase tickets to this fun and festive family event here.
Happy holidays, friends, and best of luck!
