Fun and Interesting Show

We presented "The Nutcracker" as part of a holiday show performed by children in the 3rd - 5th grade. At first the children found the musical a bit difficult to learn. They were slow on the lines and the songs, but as they got more into it, they began to have fun with the show. The audience made up mostly of parents and friends really enjoyed it and found it interesting and fun. As usual this Bad Wolf show delivered once again. The children had lots of fun working on it and also learned some background on the "Nutcracker" story that many adults are not even aware. Highly recommend.

Pros:
  • intriguing story
Cons:

Nutcracker is delightful!

I'm not sure how it is going to play because we haven't started rehearsals yet, but in preparing I find it fun and creative. I love that the songs are directly from the Tchaikovsky music. I know the students are going to be excited by it.

Nutcracker review

I was excited to do a brand new play with my class, and it went very well. Although this one didn't have a lot of the curriculum connections that I appreciate, I was still able to address stylistic use of language, vocabulary development, and reading strategies. It was a fun play to do and my students appreciated the fact that it was strange! Our audience loved it because, as adults, they got the humor.
