Disappointing

See it if you have small children and want to entertain them for an hour.

Don't see it if You want to see big production.Its a small theater, small stage and feels more like school play.

"It’s a modest production in that there are just five players, and the set, props, and costumes are not as elaborate as you’ll find at larger shows, but it hits the right note for younger kids, keeping things simple, warm, and engaging...The show is also a great introduction to the 'Nutcracker' story for little kids...Just right for the preschool crowd and up, although I'm sure tutu-loving 2-year-olds could enjoy it even if they might not follow the story."
