I was expecting more of a "professional" ballet team but it looked like they used students for this ballet. I think the event description should have stated that. Their were a lot of families with kids that had their son/daughter/niece or nephew...continued

As I've seen other performances of The Nutcracker, I had something to judge this against. It was ok. The first half felt like a community-theatre performance. The second half was definitely better, especially the performances by the Arabians...continued

The seats were great! Goldstar made arrangements for my disabled mother and the venue was very accomodating. My four year old loved it. I have to say it was a great event for anyone young or old.

The show and venue was good. An excellent and still reasonable way to...continued

The Nutcracker Ballet was put on by the Long Beach Ballet which is a large, teaching organization. The enthusiasm of each of the young dancers, many of whom were appearing in front of a live audience for the first time, added to the enjoyment of...continued

Ticket pick-up was easy. Great price. Go Goldstar!
Show itself felt like a hybrid of community and professional theater, but to me, that just made it more charming.
If the Terrace Theater were to remodel, I strongly suggest a center aisle in...continued

Purchasing tickets through Goldstar couldn't have been better, inexpensive, quick and easy. Picked up at Will Call, seats were great and the LB Ballet was amazing.

Maybe my expectations were not much. But I was really impressed with the production quality of this event. The seats...although very far back. Were center. And we had a good view. I was really happy and thought the tickets were great value. I also...continued
