Interesting adaptation of a classic. It can be scary for small children (age 8 and up- cursed once). The venue needs to turn on the HEAT!!!!

It was very interesting. My friends and I really enjoyed it. I agree about the venue needing to turn the heat on. It was pretty cold inside...

Review from James Piehl

Saw the PREVIEW. Had the grand kids. Thoroughly entertaining for all. The 7 yr old was a little frightened at one of the last scenes with the Rat King. Great storytelling job. Unique presentation. Will see it again.

I thought this was a wonderful production, great for adults and children alike, with sadness and pain and dark moments but also plenty of joy and life and celebration. I recommend it for anyone.

I took my 7 y/o daughter and we both really enjoyed it. Great adaptation! The cast was very family friendly. They even let the kids play in there "snow" during intermission.

I agree with most of the other reviews. It was an interesting & entertaining adaptation of The Nutcracker, well acted, well staged and worth every penny of admission. No kids at my performance so I can't comment on that but, as 2 others have said,...continued
