The Jewish Nutcrackers

Hanukkah may be over, but there are still Hanukkah performances to be seen!

Check out Maccabee: The Jewish Nutcracker, A Hanukkah Story coming up at the San Francisco JCC. It's produced by World Dance Fusion and will include Spanish, Arabian, Chinese and Russian dance styles, while trying to "illustrate global unity and the universal struggle of oppression." That said, the production tries to stick close to the Nutcracker's theme and music, to bring together something unifying Jews from different places.

Three shows:
Thursday, December 16 from 7-8:30 p.m.
Sunday, December 19 from 2-3:30 (for kids)
Sunday, December 19 from 7-8:30 p.m.

Cost: $25-60/ticket
Where: SFJCC (3200 California Street, SF)
Info/tickets: The Jewish Nutcracker or call 415-292-1233

There's the Meshugah Nutcracker playing at the Retro Dome in San Jose through December 19th. With a traditional Nutcracker score and new Jewish songs, it's a lot of fun. Tickets are $24-36. Or get a family 4-pack for $100. It includes four tickets, refillable popcorn, two fountain drinks and a gift bag with Ghirardelli chocolate (the chocolate happens to be one of the gifts I gave my kids for Hanukkah - and it was by far one of their favorites). To get the family four pack, email the Retro Dome at, and put "I want the family 4-pack in the subject line.
