This world-renowned production tells the story of a nutcracker who comes to life, taking its owner, Clara, on a fantastical journey through a magical world populated by the rose queen, sugar plum fairies and an army of evil rats. The enchanting tale is performed by companies large and small during the holiday season, as a beloved tradition. The spectacular dances and incomparable score by Tchaikovsky have cemented themselves in the hearts and imaginations of popular culture, enduring for decades as a classic.
Centerstage presents an afternoon of magic, wonder, imagination and laughter with their comedic, English panto spin on one of the world's most beloved fairy tales. In "Jack and the Beanstalk," when a mysterious man convinces Jack to trade a cow for a handful of magic beans, Jack's world is turned upside-down. Will Jack be able to make it all the way up the beanstalk to the Giant's castle in the clouds and make it back down the beanstalk safe and sound? Only time will tell in this fun and enchanting tale that's filled with hilariously "terrible" jokes, fun songs and a "ghost gag" bench that might have you jumping straight out of your seat.
