Wild and Precious

Sunday, November 23rd, 7:oo pm

Join us for Steven Cadwell’s hilarious and thought-provoking one man show, Wild and Precious. Cadwell grew up in Pittsford, VT in the 1950s and didn’t come out as a gay man until the 1970s. He is now married and works as a psychotherapist in the Boston area.  In Wild and Precious, Cadwell uses his own poetry, song, photos and costume changes to tell the story of his own life and the immense changes that have taken place in gay history in the last 50 years. Cadwell says the piece is meant to address those changes but also to address how they can foster positive change around other oppressed communities and to answer the question, “What does it mean to be a man?” For more about the show, click HERE

Bolshoi Ballet Broadcast: The Nutcracker

Dec. 21st, 7 pm
In HD on the THT Big Screen

On Christmas Eve, Marie’s godfather, Drosselmeyer, gives her a strange toy: a wooden nutcracker carved in the shape of a little man. At midnight, when the celebrations are over, all the toys magically come to life. The nutcracker grows to human size and takes charge of the tin soldiers, flying to the rescue of Marie, who is threatened by the Mouse King and his mouse army.

Based on E. T. A. Hoffmann’s story, The Nutcracker is one of the greatest classics in the world. With iconic music by Tchaikovsky, and enchanting sets and costumes, this beautiful tale explores the universal themes of love, power and evil.

This choreographic version, created for the Bolshoi by Yuri Grigorovich, is full of romanticism and philosophical reflections on ideal love. Masterfully interpreted by the Bolshoi dancers, it will enchant the whole family for the festive season, proving that one is never too young or too old to be swept away by The Nutcracker

Bolshoi Ballet Broadcast: Swan Lake

January 25th 7pm
Broadcast Live in HD on the THT Big Screen

At the palace, the royal family and their guests are gathered for Prince Siegfried’s birthday celebrations. In a majestic ceremony, Siegfried is made a knight; young girls try to attract his attention, as he must choose a wife during the ball. Overcome by the sudden awareness of his future responsibilities, he escapes into the night and meets a strange flock of swans by a magical lake.

White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse. The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterised by elegance, style and harmony.

With Tchaikovsky’s famous, lyrical score, Swan Lake depicts the tragic love between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried, and will no doubt be performed to perfection by the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet. This universal and enchanting masterpiece of love, deception and drama is a must.
