A brand new musical adaption of the classic tale for all the family.

It’s Christmas, and Marie is delighted with a new toy nutcracker from her Uncle. But this is no ordinary nutcracker…

Join us in Drosselmeyer’s workshop, as the magical Nutcracker brings all the toys to life to fight off the evil Mouse King and his army – and takes us on a magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets!

With original songs, live music, magical puppets and plenty of Christmas tinsel, this adaptation of A.E.Hoffman’s classic story is a festive family spectacular to get you in the spirit of Christmas.
