In 2002, Hanging Cow Productions made it's New York City, Off Off Broadway "debutt" it to sold out audiences at the American Theatre for Actors on 54th street with our ALL ORIGINAL hit parody, psuedo musical, "The ButtCracker!" A modern magical "tail" of what ballet ISN'T! WELL HOLD ON TO YOUR PANTS BECAUSE THE BUTTCRACKER IS RETURNING, BIGGER AND BETTER! We have revised the script, adding more comedy, more scenes, and even parody songs! We are currently seeking investors for an Equity Theatre Production in 2012! The rewrites tell the colorful, comedic story of a young, clumsy, coming of age woman who 'accidentally' dreams of ballet stardom in the local neighborhood production of "Prawn Lake,"a twisted and wickedly funny journey mocking the plotline of the Nutcracker ballet and every dance movie/television show from the last 2 decades! When "Cocoa" knocks herself in the head with a Nutcracker Doll on Christmas Eve, in Hells Kitchen, NYC, her dream comes alive with boys in pink tights and ballet slippers, disco clones, brainless ballerina diva's, and wanna be dirty dancers, along with a militant, alcoholic dance teacher appropriately named "Miz Beals" bring onto the stage an unforgettable comedy experience in this (un)traditional 'tail' gone awry with featured antics such as "Cutloose," "Thirty Dancing," "Crashdance," "Prancing with the Stars," "Saturday Night Beaver" and "Lord of the Pants." The Buttcracker was produced in 2002 by Hanginging Cow Productions and was Written & Directed by: Elise Maurine Milner with Co-Direction by Kristen Hveem and will be produced by Hanging Cow Productions in 2012!
