Sandra Tsing Loh’s “Sugar Plum Fairy” directed by Bart De Lorenzo
“Go, go, go to Sugar Plum Fairy… deliciously satirical Nutcracker story. Huge laughs and great holiday mirth. Sandra Tsing Loh…and the cast are magnetic to watch from beginning to end” – Broadway World
This offbeat and thoroughly original holiday treat offers festive cheer while engaging audiences to participate (think G-rated “Rocky Horror” fun). Appropriate for ages 8 to 80, and beyond, NPR’s Sandra Tsing Loh's Sugar Plum Fairy tells the story of a 12 year-old girl who dreams of dancing the lead in The Nutcracker.
Audiences are encouraged to come decked out in ugly holiday sweaters, tutus, and Hanukah hats and be prepared to join in the 75 minutes of madcap merriment. Bart De Lorenzo directs with a cast of characters you won’t forget. Joining Sandra Tsing Loh are Tony Abatemarco and Shannon Holt. Tickets are on sale now at skylighttheatre.org
“Wildly successful. Ideal antidote for…’A Christmas Carol.’ Check out Sandra Tsing Loh's rollicking ‘Sugar Plum Fairy’ as a modern glimpse of the Christmas season, and if you sit close enough to the stage you might go home with one of the show's props’ - Los Angeles Times
