How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This show of the Nutcracker was preformed and staged beautifully. A real holiday experience. The dancers and costuming was excellent! Now, if you plan to take a young child be prepared for some details of the venue that may not have occurred to you if you are not a regular theater goer... This was a matinee showing with over half those in attendance under 12. The kids where great, quiet, kept their seats as the show was clearly interesting to everyone. However, DO NOT leave the show during the performance as you are NOT allowed to return. As I understand this sort of in/out could be disruptive to the performers as well as the audience, this information is NOT posted anywhere. (Yet every door had a house made sine about not brining food into the auditorium). So when your 6 yr old needs a break before the show is over - know that it will be the end of your attendance. I feel it was more how the venue/ushers handled this than the info/rule itself... Truly enjoyed the part of the show we saw!!

Help others enjoy a great night out
