Cute performance of a holiday classic! I enjoyed the show, the dancers were very talented, and the costumes and props/backdrops were vibrant and well made. Would be perfect for the whole family. Parking and will-call were a breeze and I liked that...continued

Beautiful rendering of the Nutcracker. The dance, the costumes, the sets, all were top notch! Enjoyed how there was a time when some dancers came in from the sides of the audience. The orchestra was also excellent. The Grove is a great venue,...continued

I've seen other (better) versions of the Nutcracker and both my husband and I left disappointed. The costumes were nice and the kids were cute, but we will not be back.

The play was very nice and those involved are talented to watch. I was not impressed with the venue. The Grove in Anaheim was shockingly old looking and had old fashion individual kitchen type chairs to sit in. Not plush at all. I was very...continued
