TheaterWorks Announces a "Curiouser Nutcracker"

Posted on October 28, 2020 at 5:33 PM by Krislyn Powell

After a sold-out extended run of “Curiouser & Curiouser” at the Peoria Center for Performing Arts, TheaterWorks has adapted the immersive theater experience for the holidays. In “A Curiouser Nutcracker” Wonderland has been taken over by the Mouse King and is stuck in an eternal winter. Attendees must travel through Winter Wonderland with the White Rabbit and the Sugar Plum Fairy to find the four keys, defeat the Mouse King and free the Nutcracker. This family-friendly, holiday version of “Curiouser & Curiouser” continues the safe and intimate approach to live theater developed in response to the pandemic restrictions. Up to 12 audience members per performance will walk through every space and hallway in the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts to solve puzzles, explore and encounter Wonderland inhabitants. Tickets are on sale now and performances begin Nov. 27. For more information, visit or call 623-815-7930.
