A Bur-Less-Q Nutcracker: Burlesque Holiday Fave

Buy Tickets COMP - $24 $22 - $40

You've never seen The Nutcracker quite like this -- and neither have the ladies of the Beulaville Baptist Book Club. When the cast of their fundraiser production of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet gets sick, the book club turns to the only other performers in town: a stranded burlesque troupe called the Velvet Kittens. Not quite knowing what "bur-less-Q" is, the club is in for one hilarious surprise -- and you won't want to miss it! Now in its 11th year, this racy holiday fave took home Goldstar's 2014 National Nutcracker Award, and is going to be bigger than ever as it moves into Addison Theatre Centre's Main Stage.

Buy Tickets $46 - $115 $46 - $115

Cirque du Soleil's Varekai whisks you away to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A solitary young man parachutes into a magic forest, where he meets fantastic creatures and embarks on an adventure full of extraordinary and whimsical experiences. In the Romany language -- the language of the Gypsies -- "varekai" means "wherever," and this fantastic journey pays tribute to the wandering spirits who began the circus tradition, roaming entertainers whose travels might take them anywhere. As the show's hero explores the forest, you'll travel with him to witness high-flying aerial acts, astounding acrobatics, hilarious clowns and the Icarian games: an ancient circus art that presents a thrilling display of human juggling as the performers catapult through the air and make unbelievable landings on their partners. This fantastical adventure spectacle takes place at Fort Worth Convention Center.

My Three Angels: A Christmas Comedy About Clever Convicts

The trio take pity on their kindly employer when they learn that he will surely lose his business when an overbearing and evil-minded cousin comes from France to audit the books. Using guile, a little romance and a well-behaved snake, the three craft a plan to set matters straight, achieve justice for the shopkeeper and gain redemption for themselves.
