Breadcrumbs production of Marie and the Nutcracker Prince @Oneida Community Mansion House


WHAT: Breadcrumbs production of Marie and the Nutcracker Prince

WHEN: Sunday, Dec. 8, 2019 at 6:30PM

WHERE: Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Ave. Oneida NY 13421

Discover a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience as you enter the story of the Nutcracker...told as you've never seen it before.

Breadcrumbs Productions and the Oneida Community Mansion House invite you to a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. "Marie and the Nutcracker Prince" is an immersive theatrical journey inspired by the dark and intriguing origins of E.T.A. Hoffman's original tale. Immersed in a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution, audiences will choose their own pathways and allegiances through the space.

We meet Marie (an imaginative young woman on the precipice of adulthood), her Godfather (a mysterious and eccentric inventor), and the Revolutionary (a bold soldier with a plan that could very well turn life upside down for Marie and her family). The boundary between imagination and reality blends as political, familial, and mental unrest come to a climax, and all lose sight of what and who can be trusted.

The show will be presented at the Oneida Community Mansion on Sunday, December 8 at 6:30pm. Tickets are $20. Tickets available through Eventbrite

The Oneida Community Mansion House (OCMH) was once home to the 19th century utopian Oneida Community (1848 – 1880). The House is open for visitors Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, and Sunday from noon until 5:00 pm. Guided tours are provided regularly April-November and by appointment only December-March.

Oneida Community Mansion House is located at 170 Kenwood Ave., Oneida, NY 13421.  More information: 315-363-0745 or see: www.oneidacommunity.org.”
