Excellent, must see
24 May 2004 | by petitecatSee all my reviews

I saw this in theatre with my mom when it was out...and it was absolutely hilarious!! I've never seen a comical version of the Nutcracker, but this was great!

My dance teacher told me to see it because it was funny, and one of the dancers went to my dance school...he was brilliant as well! It is definitely a must see if you haven't seen it yet though, there's just so much comedy and humour in it, and as it's being shown through dance, it's even better!! A brilliant show.

It follows the story of the Nutcracker so if you've seen any other version, you'll still understand the storyline as you did with the version you've seen!
