A New Holiday Tradition for Orlando, Florida. #NotyournormalNutcracker
ORLANDO, Fla. (November 14, 2016) – The Dance Theatre of Orlando today announced full details of its next production, The Nuthouse – Not Your Normal Nutcracker December 2-4, 9-11 8:30 p.m. at the ME Theatre.
Synopsis Several years ago on Christmas Eve, Doctor Ebenezer, a caring and passionate inventor that dreams of revolutionizing the mental health industry at Nuremberg Asylum, was making a great discovery in supplemental medicines. The Doctor recognized that his patients served as prisoners in there own illnesses and so, in the hopes of cracking nuts, he began to perform lab experiments in order to create the perfect chemistry of drugs that would cure his patients.
The Doctor continues to seek to provide a medical diagnosis of individuals by an assessment of their symptoms and signs associated with particular types of mental disorders. The Asylum is filled with various patients that suffer from anxiety, bipolar, insomnia, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity, and drug dependence disorders just to name a few. It is no easy task for the staff at Nuremberg Asylum to handle these challenges. However, it is Christmas Eve and the patients have been anticipating the annual Christmas festivities and the arrival of a new patient.
Upon the arrival of Claire, the newest patient, Doctor Ebenezer assures her that she is safe for the general population and he releases her into the recreational room in the asylum. After the annual Christmas traditions have taken place it is back to the usual treatments of recovery. Claire, lost, scared and hopeless, finds herself in the Doctor’s lab. She decides to take action to set herself free. While slipping off into a sleep state she thinks…Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality. Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see. She, locked in the asylum, is different but still the same. The patients, nurses and Doctor continue to perform bizarre activities as once I remember. But still ,nothing really matters, anyone can see, nothing really matters, nothing really matters to me.
The Nuthouse will perform at ME Theatre (1300 La Quinta Drive, Orlando, FL, 32809). Doors open 30 minutes prior to the start of the performance. Each show lasts an hour and 10 minutes, including an interactive 15-minute intermission. Beer, wine, water, soda and light snacks are available for purchase. Tickets are per person. Select discounts at the door.
