The Nutcracker and The Mouse King, Didcot Cornerstone Theatre

The Nutcracker and The Mouse King, Didcot Cornerstone Theatre

This classical festive show at Cornerstone Arts Centre is suitable for the entire family — from 3 to 103.

When Maria and her family turn up at a dusty old toyshop on Christmas Eve, full of raggedy old toys and a mysterious toymaker, they’d rather be anywhere else. But all is not as it seems- when everyone goes to bed the toys in the shop burst into life with music, singing and dancing. Maria meets the Nutcracker, a toy who has been cursed by the evil Mouse King. Together they must find a way to lift the curse and save Christmas for everyone.

The world of the Nutcracker and the Mouse king is vividly brought to life with new songs and music, performed live by actor musicians supported by a talented young company ensemble from the local community.
