How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
As always, this House production was super fun, epecially for kids and families. Loaded with villains and had an intriguing plot with morals. Loved the stage effects of walls cracking and pictures turning on the walls. The kids had a great time rollicking in the fake snow at intermission and parents got some great pictures - terrific photo op. Finally, the stage hands asked the kids to sit down and took to sweeping the stage. It was very imaginatively done with a whole different twist to the Nutcracker story and a high energy cast with players, who, as usual, relate to audience members directly and make them feel very appreciated.
