This review is for the play The Nutcracker not the Theater. The play was average at best. The dancers were very weak and not trained enough to show professionalism and higher skills. The dances were mediocre but at least the costumes were beautiful. There is a live horse on the play which is probably the highlight of the night.

Loved this venue! Plenty of parking and very scenic. We used a smaller auditorium with plush theatre seating which was very nice. Beautiful area and lots of restaurants in the Pike area.
