About the event

Join Clara and her Nutcracker Prince on a captivating adventure through a magical winter wonderland.

It’s Christmas Eve in Berlin 1892 and the festivities are in full swing with the Stalhbaum family’s annual Christmas ball and magical inventor Drosselmeyer busy in his workshop making toys for children across the land.

Clara Stahlbaum is gifted a Nutcracker by her Godfather, Drosselmeyer, and she is enchanted by the doll. But later that night, she tiptoes downstairs to find her living room filled with mice, the room has grown, and her Nutcracker has disappeared!

Soon Clara is swept away with the dashing Prince Peter – together they must fight the evil Mouse King and set out on a magical musical journey through the lands of Snow, Fun and Sweets.

The Nutcracker is a new musical spectacular, brought to you by the New Theatre Royal team behind Peter Pan and Beauty and the Beast.

Join us for a Christmas adventure for all the family filled with music and magic.
