“Kola is the story of the rights of passage for a young girl…It is a pleasure to revise & make relevant this traditional show with the pantheon of greats that represent the Bay Area youth arts scene.” - Artist, RyanNicole

This inspiring, joy-filled, and moving professional production has received rave reviews and is being hailed as “the new holiday classic.”  Kola: An Afro Diasporic Remix of The Nutcracker is a re-envisioned version of The Nutcracker through the lens of African and Afro-Latinx music, dance, theater, and culture reflecting the lives of Black and Brown children socially, politically, and spiritually, set in modern-day Oakland.

 

The KOLA creative team, comprised of TPC founder Rozz Nash and beloved local artists Jennifer Johns as the lead, Grammy nominated Ryan Nicole as book author and lead and Kev Choice as the composer, rewrote this narrative with a team of Bay Area’s most renowned composers, choreographers, costume designers, and visual artists,  Kola offers new music compositions representing Jazz, Gospel, Afro-Caribbean, Hip Hop, R&B, and re-mixed Tchaikovsky.
