The description did not mention that it was an hour long amateur benefit. For the parents and friends of the participants it was a lovely afternoon. For those of us who drove 20 miles to see the performance it was "interesting". We loved the...continued

Nothing thrilling. It was just ok at best. I must have had higher expectations for the quality of performance.

I'm sorry to offend and I may be thought of as a big asshole but because of the high cost I paid for such a terrible show I'm never going to use goldstar again, goodbye...

This was a very amateurish production. Hard to follow the story. Had I known, I would not have spent as much money.

really didn't get that it was a ballet school performance best for the parents of the children in the school... really didn't like the misinformation in the goldstar listing... really didn't like the rewriting of the story - very poorly done......continued

A complete waste of our time and money. This was not a fully realized piece. It was under-choreographed, directed and rehearsed. The very few dancers were barely competent, although, as they were given so little to do, it is hard to tell what they...continued

This may be one of the very WORST live shows I have ever seen. Ever. Frankly II have seen middle school children perform better than this silly excuse of a "production." When I bought the tickets I thought it was a professional group doing a...continued

Underwhelming. I've seen better performances by a dance school. I would not go again. Seats were good.

Very disappointing. Expected the entire performance to be in the 40s swing style. Storyline was a mess. Younger members were quite inexperienced.

It was not what I expected. I assumed from the way it was advertised that the entire production would be in the music from the 1940s. The entire first half was the usual Nutcracker music. I was disappointed.

Did not seem like a professional quality show. It was a children's ballet school recital that was "passed" as professional by featuring a few seasoned dancers, who, judging by their interactions with the parents of the children in the show, were...continued

The system used for will call was less than adequate and quite frustrating. It started late. It was the typical Nutcracker except for about 5% swing...we thought we were coming to a PROFESSIONAL BALLET COMPANY's version of the Nutcracker done ALL...continued

This was by far the WORST performance I have ever been to. Do NOT waste your time. The performance started 30 minutes late and looked completely unrehearsed! The stage looked disorganized and chaotic and the dancers were visibly instructing other...continued

Spirited event with very attractive actors. Very pleased to see a version of the Nutcracker that represents the diversity of America...Black, Latino, Asian and White...etc. Really enjoys watching the performance especially in the 2nd act when...continued

The show was supposed to start at 1. It started at 1:22, and ended at 2:25. I was "underwhelmed" by the production.

While the main dancers were good, I thought overall the production was amateurish. The children seemed like they were taken from a beginning class in dance school. Also, very little was performed with swing music, in contradiction to the...continued

A dance school put this performance on as an exercise to show off what the students have learned. For what it was it was OK. I don't think I can recommend it.
