In A Kansas Nutcracker, a retooled version of The Nutcracker Suite, Clara is still presented with the beloved nutcracker doll, but then historical Kansas figures — politicos James Lane, Charles Robinson and Lawrence icon Hugh Cameron — blast into the scene in a Civil War battle that breaks the doll. A cast of more than 130 and the 13-member Free State Liberation Orchestra pay tribute to E.T.A. Hoffman's original work, setting it in 1861, the first year of Kansas statehood and the Civil War. Clara still dreams of her Nutcracker prince but also of abolition, suffrage and temperance in Kansas. See the show today at the Lawrence Arts Center (940 New Hampshire, Lawrence, 785-843-2787) at 2 and 7 p.m. (It's also performed Friday, December 14, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, December 16, at 2 p.m.) Tickets cost $19 ($13 for students). See lawrenceartscenter.org.
