And there perish the similarities between any conventional "Nutcracker" and "The Chocolate Nutcracker," which opened Wednesday night at the Lincoln Theatre and continues through tomorrow.

Shauntavia Dawkins, 16, giggles and shows off the move; she gets on the balls of her bare feet and moves her knees in and out.

It's not a movement you usually see in The Nutcracker, but then again, this isn't the usual Nutcracker.
