At the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts

Check back for 2023 dates announcement!

Memphis Jookin superstar Charles

NutRemix™ mirrors the New Ballet program model with a modern reinvention of Tchaikovsky’s classic “Nutcracker,” set on Memphis’s iconic Beale Street. The production augments the traditional ballet segments with authentic cultural forms including American tap, flamenco, Memphis Jookin, West African and Congolese dance and drumming among other genres to create a fully integrated program.

Annually, NutRemix™ attracts a wide Memphis audience whose enthusiasm for the production is key in building the student dancers’ professionalism and self-esteem. This audience is also national; not only has Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times written about NutRemix, but he also called it one of his favorite Nutcrackers on Good Morning America.

This was my second year seeing NutRemix™, and it was magical! The show is truly representative of our modern Memphis! There is so much diversity, not only in terms of race, but also music and dance genres, as well as ages. The little mice and soldiers were simply adorable, and Jeremy Bowers was phenomenal as the Memphis Angel! I definitely recommend seeing the show, and I will continue to be a patron in the future!
