THE NUTCRACKER

"breathtaking!"

"...a great evening of theatre, dance and music!"
                                - The Herald Sun

"The dancing was faultless, the costumes a feast for the eyes, and thank you for NOT changing or modernising this lovely ballet.

It was exquisitely beautiful and brought tears to my eyes at time. The memory will long stay with me."

                                - Eileen Briggs

My 5-year-old niece loved it, my 82-year-old mother loved it and I loved it – so you scored a hat trick! I was so very impressed with the standard and professionalism of the dancing and the production was first-class not to mention Herr Drosselmeyer who wizarded away as to the manner born.”

                               - Sandy Graham

Don't miss out on seeing this family entertainment at its best!
