Butterfly Wheels are back with a gothic and stunning adaptation of Hoffman's classic tale The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. Incorporating performance, film, dance and an original soundtrack, this is not your average sugar-coated pantomime.

Butterfly Wheel's The Nutcracker tells Hoofman's classic tale of Marie's adventures into the magical world of The Nutcracker. Her sinister Godfather Drosselmeir gives her care of a magical Nutcracker, and Marie is drawn into a universe where heroic dolls battle evil mice, commanded by a seven-headed mouse king. Should they succeed, Marie can break the Nutcracker's curse and become Queen of the land of dreams.

Butterfly Wheels tell this fantastic story, not only through their talented young cast, but also through projected films that allows the story to flow from one fantasy to another. Original music and live songs complete the package and make Butterfly Wheel's The Nutcracker a must-see this Christmas.

An exciting and unique Burton-esque vision that stays true to the original eerie novelette. Packed full of dancing clockwork dolls, seven headed mouse kings and magical worlds, this adaptation is perfect for families looking for something more alternative this Christmas. An adaptation of the classic story like you've never seen before.
