(DEAL PARK, NJ) -- Axelrod Contemporary Ballet Theater (AXCBT) presented "The Nutcracker Rocks" at Axelrod Performing Arts Center from December 11-19 and photographer John Posada was on hand to take some photos of the show. This contemporary adaptation of the ballet was conceived by AXCBT Artistic Director Gabriel Chajnik. Based on Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, “The Nutcracker Rocks,” includes a revamped rock score by The Gaslight Anthem's Alex Levine and Alex Rosamilia.

With an updated script by Reuben Jackson and Jason Cohen, “The Nutcracker Rocks” follows a bored, teen Clara, who must endure her family’s posh holiday party on the Upper East Side until her eccentric Uncle Dross shows up with his rock music, magical toys, and a special gift for Clara. He then transports Clara to a magic land—the Jersey Shore —where the traditional Land of Sweets is a candy shop in Asbury Park.
