This is a heartwarming show and is great for both kids and adults. It's a new way of telling the Nutcracker story and will be close to home for many. Expect to laugh and be moved! (And you can bring your drink into the theater!!)

Totally different than the traditional rendition of The Nutcracker. Dark portrayl of the Rat King (the little kids were scared). Overall it was great though. The House Theatre always puts up a great interactive show, and they did not disappoint.

We went to an 8:00 show with our 6 and 8 year olds, pretty sure that they would tire out by intermission. The show was pure delight -- by turns festive, pensive, scary. ... continued
