I wanted to take my 9 year old to a performance of The Nutcracker but didn't want to spend $50 on a ticket. The price for this performance and the location of the seats was outstanding. And of course the actual performance was excellent. Nice...continued

It was the first time that I had taken my boys to see The Nutcracker. We had a great time. We liked it very much and all the performances. We especially liked the Russian Dancers.

My family truly enjoyed the show. It has both the intimate, community feel to it and the talents and visuals that professional shows boast. We will go again next year!

The show was a great local production. Sound was great. Only problem was regarding my inability to see the entire stage due to the seating where persons in the row in front were partially blocking my view.

It was awful. We left at intermission, and not a moment too soon. This is a kids' production which is only of interest if you have a child of your own that is performing. I hate to be mean, but these were not talented performers at all and it...continued
