The Nutcracker

Tickets £4.00 / £3.50 concessions for the performance

£3.50 for the workshop

Adapted from the story by Hoffman, the play takes place in a toyshop in 19th century Germany where Zachariah the toymaker is hard at work.  Reality gradually gives way to dream-like fantasy as the audience is led into a series of amazing adventures.  The toys come to life like those of Marie and Fritz in the fairytale, and Zachariah takes on the character of the children’s godfather Drosselmeier – the sinister clockmaker. 

The imaginative use of toys, puppets and Christmas traditions makes the show particularly magical, and although aimed at young audiences it is vividly accessible to all ages.

Suitable for age 5 plus

Running time 60 minutes

A puppet making workshop accompanies this performance which will begin at 3.00pm, but tickets are limited so book early.
