Synopsis


On Christmas Eve the toymaker Drosselmeier gives Marie and Fritz a traditional nutcracker in the shape of a soldier.


Captivated by this strange little wooden figure, Marie stays up extra late to settle him down in the toy cabinet.


As the clock strikes midnight the Mouse King appears with his mouse army, and challenges brave Nutcracker to a fearsome battle.


And then the most magical story begins to unfold …


A retelling of E.T.A Hoffman's classic Christmas tale for children aged 4+ and their friends and families.


Jellyfish Theatre Company (The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast), return to The Lion and Unicorn with their brand new show.


Funny, accessible and inspiring. (But NOT a ballet!)
