The Puppet Co.’s annual holiday treat, The Nutcracker, features marionettes and larger-than-life costume characters, culminating in a delightful and thoroughly entertaining production for the entire family. All the favorite Tchaikovsky tunes are there, accompanying Clara and Fritz as they play with their toys given to them from Godfather; as the Nutcracker fights off the Mouse King; and as Clara and the Nutcracker venture to the Land of the Sugarplum Fairy to joyfully watch a dancing donkey, a glittering dragon and of course, waltzing flowers!
