Marching toy soldiers, waltzing snowflakes, mischievous mice and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score are quintessential hallmarks of the holidays. Celebrate the season with Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's student production of The Nutcracker, a holiday ballet for the whole family. Featuring dancers of all ages, The Nutcracker tells the story of young Clara, who receives a gift of a wooden nutcracker doll at her parents' Christmas party. That night, she dreams her nutcracker comes to life and together they battle the wicked Mouse King and journey through an enchanted forest of snow to reach the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy and all her sweet subjects await them.

I loved this show! The acrobatics and theatrics were amazing. My only real complaint was that they didn't tie in the theme of cinema very well - it was more vaudeville type acts and costumes than anything really having to do with cinema besides costumes. However, seeing it at the Kodak was very cool, and I would recommend it to anyone!
