Event website

After 16 years of performing The Nutcracker Burlesque, Vivid Motion decided it’s time for a change. Since nothing is safe from being burlesqued, they are having a go at the classic Christmas poem, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. There won’t be any children nestled in bed in this show… there may not even be nightgowns! With new music from the NB Ensemble, a new story, and sexy new dances — this is going to be the new holiday tradition you don’t want to miss.

Vivid Motion invites the public to experience a new Christmas story told in only the way that they can. Performances will be at St. Lawrence Arts in Portland.

Show Schedule:
Friday through Sunday, December 13 – 15 at 7:30 pm
Wednesday through Saturday, December 18 – 21 at 7:30 pm
