Christmas is just around the corner. While I absolutely LOVE the Christmas season, I have mixed feelings about it this year… it’s the dreaded time when I have to go back to work after a full year off while on maternity leave. Can you see my super sad face? This year, I have to really try to focus on the positives, like family, friends and all the “funness” that comes with the most wonderful time of year.
I love going to see live theater, but with a few kids at home, it’s not really much of an option to go out and see all the shows the season has to offer. If I can’t get the adult version, I may as well get the kids version of some of the holiday classics. Max & Ruby are coming to town with their own rendition of The Nutcracker Suite.
Here’s a synopsis:
t’s Christmas Eve, and Ruby is busy trimming the tree, while Max is chasing the delicious scent of Grandma’s freshly baked gingerbread cookies! A knock at the door reveals a huge parcel from their Great Uncle Drosselmeyer. As the package is unwrapped, Ruby realizes that each new toy is from the story of the Nutcracker Ballet, including a Nutcracker doll!
As Grandma reads the story of the Nutcracker, their imaginations whisk them away to a magical land where they become characters in the beloved ballet. Dancing, singing and delicious treats follow, as the bunny pair experiences the wonder and excitement of the classic Nutcrackerstory. Whether it was the sweets, or their lively imaginations, the bunny siblings head off to bed with visions of candy canes dancing in their heads!
Max & Ruby’s adventure, guided by the classic notes of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, is full of delectable dance and holiday magic perfect for the whole family.
I’ve known the story of the Nutcracker since I was a little girl, so I’m really excited to see this live on stage with my daughter in a setting she will understand with characters she loves.
