You can share in Clara’s journey as she encounters giant toy soldiers, swirling snowflakes
and sweet confections from every corner of the globe.

The ominous Mouse King andthe heroic Nutcracker battle it out and just when all hope is lost, Clara hits the MouseKing with her ballet shoe. The Mouse King is distracted and the Nutcracker is saved
from his demise. Out of a dream, Clara’s Nutcracker Prince magically appears to escort
her into a fantasyland of delights, journeying through The Land Of Snow and Kingdom
of the Sweets.
