The show had some nice ideas, but it fell a bit flat for me. Occasionally, it felt very "acted" and a couple people were using their "acting voices," but there were some... continued

The Nutcracker: an age-old holiday tradition. However, this year's event was more than a little different. The House Theatre's rendition is a spell-binding, marvelously... continued

Very good show, the staff and cast went out of their way to make us feel special, especially my eight year old son. They sat us in the front room and really showered... continued

Very unexpected version of Nutcracker. If you are tired of the same Nutcracker every year, you should see this one. Colorful musical story with some lough through tears.... continued

Great show. My older late teen and early 20s children loved it. So good I came back and attended again after seeing it last year. Brought relatives who also loved it.

I liked the story, it's not the usual Nutcracker, but the story is too sad to keep seeing it every year

This was a fabulous version of the Nut Cracker.
Acting was fabulous.
A little scarry at some scenes, but our 3.5 year old made it thru and is still talking about the play.

Great show!!! My family and I (ranging from adults to children) have seen this twice in the last three years. It is a fresh, fun, sad, joyful look at the relationship between love and loss. Highly recommended for every age.

I imagined the Nutcracker performance to be similar to the Jeffrey ballet one, but it was defiantly different. I would suggest for anyone that plans on attending it to... continued

I loved this version of the Nutcracker. The young actress who played Clara was terrific, as were all the actors. The length was just right and everyone involved was so pleasant. A great night out all around.
