I loved House Theatre's re-imagined take on The Nutcracker. I have seen a few plays put on by The House and I love their style...clever, witty and funny. I recommend this play to both young and old. Dancey dancey!

I was not sure what to expect as the description said they put their own twist on it.... and it was wonderful! Very funny and exciting - I'm an adult and was very interested and children were on the edge of their seats. Pleasantly surprised.

This is a great play that is definitely not the Nutcracker of my youth. I would not recommend taking children under the age of 10 because there is some dark material.
