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 third national tour following the success of two previous sold-out tours. THE HIP HOP NUTCRACKER 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. This new dance work celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year’s Eve. Special guest MC KURTIS BLOW, one of hip hop’s founding fathers, will open the show with a short set before rapping the introduction to The Hip Hop Nutcracker.

Peace Boston presents:
"Hip Hop 911; Black Spots On My Soul " is an interactive stage play written by Queen Viv, directed by Naheem Garcia and executive produced by Cindy Diggs. The message comes to life through various art forms which include actors, dancers, singers and film clips.
The script takes the audience on an intense journey highlighting social issues affecting young people and the community as a whole. The story is centered around a Scrooge-like character (Ebony) portrayed by Cindy Diggs, (Founder of Peace Boston) who is humored by the Ghosts of Hip Hop Past, Present and Future while confronting Ebony about her current attitude toward life.
This play encourages its audience to take a deeper look into the need for stronger advocates for arts programs in schools, increased funding for private programs that are struggling to keep their doors open to the community and non - profit organizations with the capacity to provide quality programming that receive little to no funding for the arts.
