Choreographer Adam H. Weinert’s RIP THE NUT is a pantomime-style, Hudson Valley-inspired mash-up of the Rip Van Winkle story and Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite. Weinert Company Dancers are joined by the young students of Hudson Hall’s youth workshops and a host of community partners for three enchanting performances filled with music, dance, comedy, slapstick, and that special, only-at-Winter-Walk charm.
This special event is part of Winter Walk, which lights up the early December night with stunning storefront displays, roaming carolers, Mr. and Mrs. Claus, street performers, and a magical firework display from the Hudson River. In its 23rd year, the 2019 Winter Walk is the perfect way to celebrate the creative economy re-energizing Hudson. So layer up and join our radiant community for a night of warm hearts and festive cheer!
Join your favorite cast members and dance the cold away at the Winter Walk after party, Rip the Night, at Second Ward Foundation (71 North 3rd St.) – featuring live music, dj sets and drag. Hosted by Davon.
Hudson Hall programs are supported, in part, by an award from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
