The dancing and set design were magnificent. The role of the Prince danced by Fidel Garcia was particularly a pleasure to watch.

We loved the sets, costumes and especially the dancers! The audience included young and old, and we all enjoyed the show. My hands hurt from clapping so much!

We loved the show! The Olney Ballet did a wonderful job! From the professional dancers to the "school" children.....it was a great show! The costumes and pretty set backgrounds were very impressive....Will definitely go again next year!

The Nutcracker at Olney Theater was lovely. An excellent version to attend with kids.

Bit of a slow start; family feel to it; beautiful costumes; some lovely guest performances; nice length of program - not too long; good for kids.

First time using Goldstar and all went smoothly! Nice production at Olney Theatre, and the four of us, including eight-year-old granddaughter, loved their Nutcracker.

Wonderful show with very talented young dancers. The only downside was the constant snapping of two cameras taking at least one picture/second. No kidding. No one should have to hear ANYTHING but the show.

The show was very nicely done. The music was lovely and at a good sound level. The dancers were handsome, cute and beautiful. I enjoyed every scene. Only negative, the theatre was cold.

A very enjoyable production despite the limitations of the Historic Stage (no live music, limited stage room) and a great job done by the all-volunteer cast.

Terrific event. A quality show - so much better than what you would expect from regional theater. Amazing really. Our children, ages 8-13 also thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was a very good performance for the price. My 10 year old daughter liked it, but found it a bit long--which the Nutcracker always is. The cast did a great job on the reletively small stage they had to work with. This is not the New York Ballet,...continued

The ballet was a once in a lifetime event. The 50th anniversary of Mary Day's Nutcracker Ballet was in and of itself an awesome experience. And to be performed by the outstanding professional cast from around the world side-by-side with...continued

The play itself was very enjoyable. Very nice, quaint theater. However, the house photographer took so many pictures, that I thought they must be making a frame by frame movie of the production. By the end of intermission, when Act 3 was still...continued

This was a spectacular production!

The only down side was the actual theater. Myself and many of my fellow patrons were craning our necks to view the stage. For a performance that we are capiviated by from floor to celing...many of us could...continued

Very nice local show. However, parental audience member was very distracting with constant loud applause. Music score was CONSTANTLY interrupted by this woman. Perhaps someone should encourage her to allow the rest of the audience to enjoy the...continued
