The Nutcracker and The Tale of the Hard Nut
Friday, December 15, 7:30 PM
IN ORDER TO RESTORE PRINCESS PIRLIPAT’S BEAUTY… and break the “Curse of Ugliness” the Mouse Queen’s evil spell had cast upon her, the Princess must eat the kernel of the Magical Krakatuk Nut. Christian Elias Drosselmeyer, as ordered by the King, must find both the Magical Krakatuk Nut and the young man who is fated to crack it open.
