The Nutcracker Story



Monday December 29, 2014  2-3pm

Free tickets available Monday December 22nd

 in the children’s room.

If you've ever sat and watched the Nutcracker ballet and wondered why all those mice are running around or why they just don't get a cat, here's the reason:  the Nutcracker ballet is just a small part of E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic tale, The Nutcracker.  Join storyteller Carolyn Martino,  and you'll learn the whole story. 

When the castle mice are killed for eating the King's sausages, the Mouse Queen swears her eternal revenge.  Thus, the real tale begins.  There ensues an unspeakable curse, a treacherous journey to find the hardest nut in the world, an heroic battle against the forces of villainy, the triumph of true love -- these are the elements that have made this rousing old folktale a family favorite for over a hundred years.  You'll leave Carolyn's program with a new understanding of this classic story.
