By popular demand, ContempraDANCE Theatre’s “Philly Nutt Crak-Up” will be in Manayunk for their first time with another season of sheer entertainment. Join the infamous Rappin SugarPlum Fairy, battling Hip Hoppin Railway Rats, City Hall Dolls, Captain Philadelphia and Liberty Belle-Anne, as they are sure to amaze audiences with this “nutty” take-off of the classic Nutcracker.
