Do you have family members with children visiting for Thanksgiving next week? Why not treat them to a holiday delight by bringing them to a performance of Clara & the Nutcracker? The show opens on Saturday, November 29th, 2014 and runs through Sunday December 21, 2014 at the Reinberger Auditorium located at 5209 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44102.
There is more to the story of The Nutcracker than Tchaikovsky told. This version is less about tights and tutus and more about truth and courage. Join Clara, the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Nutcracker Prince and the Mouse King to hear the “rest of the story”. It’s a merry magical musical mischief time for all.

About Talespinner Children’s Theatre
TCT is a Cleveland-based company that develops and produces highly imaginative, original, collaborative and interactive professional works for children that also stimulate creative growth in its artists. At any time, these pieces may involve acting, dance, music, puppetry, tumbling, drumming, and numerous other artistic disciplines as imagined by the artistic teams working with and for TCT, and are open to all creative possibility. TCT’s aim is to bring theatre to the community in its fullest form providing excitement, growth and joy for all who are involved in and/or touched by its work. Clara & the Nutcracker concludes TCT’s third audience and critically acclaimed producing season, which began with Aesop’s Pirate Adventure, and included “The Floating Dolls”–a Polish Folktale, and Loki & Lucy—“A Norse Mythology Story”.
TCT strives to reach across socio-economic, cultural and traditional boundaries to help awaken and bring better understanding by opening eyes, ears, hearts and imaginations in the young people (and artists) of Cleveland and its surrounds. TCT creates work that remembers that children are smaller people, not lesser people.
