Reading Rep Theatre today announces the world première of Helen Eastman’s The Nutcracker, a brand-new musical adaption of the classic tale for all the family. The production opens at Reading Studio from 20 December, with previews from 17 December, and runs until 23 December 2019.
It’s Christmas, and Marie is delighted with a new toy nutcracker from her Uncle. But this is no ordinary nutcracker…
In Drosselmeyer’s workshop, the magical Nutcracker brings all the toys to life to fight off the evil Mouse King and his army – and takes the audience on a magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets!
With original songs, live music, magical puppets and plenty of Christmas tinsel, this adaptation of A. E. Hoffman’s classic story is a festive family spectacular.
