Nooga Nutcracker 2023

A delightful twist on the classic ballet, Nooga Nutcracker is set in present-day Chattanooga. As the story goes, Clara, after receiving her Nutcracker, goes to sleep and is awakened by a sassy mouse queen. With the help of the Chattanooga Mocs and Clara, the Nutcracker defeats the mouse queen and her posse. To thank Clara for her assistance, the Nutcracker prince takes Clara out into Chattanooga for a magical night on the town.
