A Christmas tale of an enchanted nutcracker and a magical world will be the Nuffield Theatre’s festive production this year.

The mysterious Uncle Drosselmeier gives Clara an enchanted nutcracker as her present. Soon the toys come to life, gingerbread soldiers do battle with armies of mice and Clara journeys far and wide in search of her beloved prince.

Based on the original tale by ETA Hoffman, The Nutcracker will run from December 5 until January 12. It’s suitable for children aged six and above.

Tickets: £9 to £16.50 from the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, on (023) 8067 1771 or go to
