(with inspirations from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet)
Nearly everyone knows the tale of the Nutcracker: A gift to Marie from her Godfather Drosslemeier on Christmas Eve. Sadly, the beautiful Nutcracker gets broken and later that night Marie goes to check up on it. To her surprise, it has come alive, and a story-within-the-story begins! The audience is invited to become a part of the Nutcracker story and everyone gets to live happily ever after.
Erin Bell (Mrs. Stahlbaum/Sugar Plum Fairy), Kate Poling (Frederica ‘Fritzi'/The Mouse King), Emily Gomes (Marie Stahlbaum), Rory Pierce (Herr Drosselmeier), Kristopher Buxton (Ernst/The Nutcracker) with piano recording by Randy Johnson.
