A good production of the classic. I was surprised that a full live orchestra was present and played the music. I thought that the throwing of candy to the audience was a nice idea and so was the clever use of soap suds sprinkling down from the...continued

This was wonderful! I enjoyed the performance very much. Couldn't stop smiling the entire time I was there. I will definitely go again to one of their upcoming performances. Costumes were lovely, and just a fun, fun evening. Great music. ...continued

Beautiful rendering of the Nutcracker. The dance, the costumes, the sets, all were top notch! Enjoyed how there was a time when some dancers came in from the sides of the audience. The orchestra was also excellent. The Grove is a great venue,...continued

I've seen other (better) versions of the Nutcracker and both my husband and I left disappointed. The costumes were nice and the kids were cute, but we will not be back.

The orchestra played amazing! The dancers were wonderful and did a fantastic job. The only thing that wasn't great was the chairs were the most uncomfortable ever, to the point it distracted from the show. Seat location was great.

The play was very nice and those involved are talented to watch. I was not impressed with the venue. The Grove in Anaheim was shockingly old looking and had old fashion individual kitchen type chairs to sit in. Not plush at all. I was very...continued
