Here’s a sweet take on an oft-performed classic. Debbie Allen Dance Academy’s “The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker,” based on the original “Nutcracker” but given a new twist, is holding an open call in Los Angeles later this month for ensemble players.

The musical, for which Debbie Allen herself “has taken tradition and given it a new context, fresh lively characters, new music and spectacular dancing,” seeks talent aged 6–30 to round out the chorus.

Open casting calls for this nonunion gig will be held Sept. 17 at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy in L.A. Rehearsals are set to begin Oct. 2, with a run slated for Dec. 16–17 at L.A.’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
