Battle to save the magic of Christmas

Award-winning Story Pocket Theatre are presenting a pre-Christmas treat for younger children and their families at The Montgomery, the colourful and magical story of The Nutcracker.

It’s Christmas and when Clara is given a wooden nutcracker in the shape of a handsome Prince, little does she know that she and her brother Fritz are about to be drawn into a great adventure.

The Mouse Queen has stolen the magic of the Christmas tree star and the Land of Make Believe is in danger. The children and the toys must join in battle against the rotten royal rodent to save the magic of Christmas and restore the Prince to the throne.

But first, Clara and Fritz must learn how to believe…
