Always a great show, year after year at the historic Wadsworth theatre. The Westside Ballet put on another beautiful production of this holiday classic. Great for the whole family.

Mediocre/young talent all around with the exception of the male dancer in Arabian Nights. Seats were ok, price was ok, dancers were ok, and the choreography. Oh, costumes were above average, it just didn't seem like a professional production -...continued

This was an excellent production of the Nutracker. Seating was ample and comfortable, and for an amateur troupe, they did a great job.

It's a ballet school production, but still very good. Then again, it was my very first time seeing ballet, so what do I know?

We had a good time. Prepare yourself for kids in the audience - in other words, you'll probably have kids talking during the show and possibly kicking the back of your chair. Family-type show, so this should be expected. Parking at the theatre is...continued

I have seen 20+ performances of The Nutcracker, and I'm very sorry to say this was the worst. By professional standards, it was a disaster, with very few bright spots in the evening. It was also the loudest ballet I've ever been to -- apparently...continued

We, my 9 yrd old daughter & I, enjoyed the entire show (2 hours)on my balcony seats which had a great view.

This was geared for both adults and children.
I especially loved the music by Tchaikovsky. The costumes and stage props were very...continued

Certainly not a stellar production, but for $15 it is enjoyable. The principle dancers are all fantastic, which off-sets the mediocre company. The first act is especially slow due to the youth and greeness of the children in the company. This is a...continued

I took my two daughters, age 7, and we all loved it. I bought them each a nutcracker in the lobby before the show, so that added to the excitement. The dances and the costumes were so beautiful!

This was an excellent time, spent with my family! The theatre was a perfect setting, so warm and beautiful. The performances were everything from absolutely adorable to truly impressive. There wasn't an orchestra playing the score, which would...continued

AMAZING performance! Couldn't believe how beautiful the costumes and the dancing were for a non-professional ballet company. Wonderful sense of humor weaved into the performance too - very witty and completely entertaining from start to finish....continued

Children under 3 years old should not be allowed. A very talkative mother & her 2 year old daughter sat behind me after the intermission & when I asked her to please be quiet, she waved me away & completely ignored my polite request. Another small...continued
