Debbie Allen’s “The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker” Wins 7th Annual Goldstar National Award
Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy, which competed with nearly 60 other Nutcracker productions across the country, will receive a cash prize to benefit the organization’s educational programs, and bragging rights since it was declared ‘the best-loved Nutcracker in the U.S.’ This is another win for the Debbie Allen Dance Academy who took home The Nutty in 2010 as well.
The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker, starred Debbie Allen and Carlo Imperato, but also included Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Chau-giang Thi Nguyen, James Ingram and Thump as part of the creative team.
The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker gives the seasonal favorite a rich new cultural context and updated characters, and features a lively contemporary score with original songs from multiple-Grammy-winner Mariah Carey and others. After young Kara receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate, she falls asleep and journeys to enchanted lands, including Candy Cane Lane, Egypt, the Rainforest, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. Little ones will have no trouble following along thanks to the narration by three wisecracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey. Allen herself appears in this fun holiday musical adventure.
Previous winners of “The Nutty” Statuette include: The Joffrey Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2011 and 2012; Debbie Allen Dance Academy, The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker in 2010; Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2009; The Kirov Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2008; and The House Theater of Chicago’sThe Nutcracker at the Steppenwolf Theatre in 2007.
