Clara & the Nutcracker

“Even if you've seen The Nutcracker a million times, Talespinner puts a different twist on the classic tale. It is less formal and more accessible; less serious and more silly. It's an enjoyable holiday treat for all ages.” — Sarah Valek, Cool Cleveland
“This is fun stuff for kids… Clara is a sure-fire winner for families with small children.” — Christine Howey, Rave and Pan

Clara, the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Nutcracker Prince, and even the Mouse King are back, but this time they're finally ready to tell the REST of the story. It's less about Tchaikovsky, tights, and tutus, and more about truth — with plenty of merry magic and musical mischief along the way.
