BOOK BY SARAH BRANDT | MUSIC AND LYRICS BY NEAL RICHARDSON | DIRECTED BY SUKI PETERS
Marie is a little lonely after her family moves to a new town, but when her Godfather arrives with some mysterious Christmas Eve packages, she finds magic in very unlikely places. One of Godfather’s gifts is a wooden nutcracker that appears to be nothing more than an ugly toy, but Marie soon discovers there may be more than meets the eye. The Nutcracker leads Marie on a magical adventure full of evil mice, dancing fairies and distant lands, showing her along the way that friends may not be so hard to find and that the magic of Christmas can last the whole year through.
