Merlin Theatre Productions presents

The Nutcracker

A musical play

It’s Christmas, the best time of year for toys and stories. But all over the world, the magic of Make Believe is fading. Only the toys know the truth: the Queen and King of Mouses have stolen the Christmas Star and used its magic to turn the Prince of Make Believe into a wooden Nutcracker.

Can Clara and her brother Fritz bring the Nutcracker back to life, help him defeat the House of Mouse, and restore him to the throne?

First, they must believe…

After last year’s hugely successful award winning Hansel and Gretel Merlin Theatre Productions return this Christmas with a beautiful imagining of this festive favourite.

Book and lyrics by Jenifer Toksvig
