The Geneva Historical Society is again partnering with Breadcrumb Productions to bring a new and innovative holiday production to Rose Hill Mansion on Sunday, December 9, 2018. The immersive theatrical experience will take place throughout the mansion’s first floor.
Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is a riveting 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.
Performances are at 6 and 8 p.m. with a reception from 7 to 7:45 p.m. Each performance is 60 minutes. Tickets are $20 per person and include the performance and reception. Space is limited and reservations are required. Call 315-789-5151 for tickets or purchase online at brownpapertickets.com. The Carriage House Gift Shop at Rose Hill will also be open during the event.
