Folkestone Quarterhouse presents The Nutcracker as its Christmas show on 20, 21, 23 and 24 December 2014 at 2.30pm every day.

It’s Christmas and Clara is given a wooden nutcracker in the shape of a handsome Prince. This enchanting present leads Clara and her brother Fritz into festive fun and great adventure.

The Mouse Queen has stolen the magic of the Christmas Tree star and the Land of Make Believe is in danger. The children and the toys must join in battle against the rotten royal rodent to save the magic of Christmas and restore the Prince to the throne. But first, Clara and Fritz must learn how to believe…

The Nutcracker is adapted by Jenifer Toksvig; and co-directed by Julia Black, who has directed over 40 productions for the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, and Adam Forde, who is head of Youth Theatre and Education at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre; music is by David Perkins whose previous work includes ‘The Wind in the Willows’ for Edinburgh Festival Fringe, ‘The Happy Prince’ for Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre and ‘Just So Stories’ for the Apollo Theatre Company.

‘If you would like your children to be inspired and fuel their imagination with beautiful stories, Arabian Nights is not to be missed, it is AWESOME!’ The Primary Times

After the sell-out success of their award winning show Arabian Nights, Story Pocket Theatre brings this colourful and magical festive story to Quarterhouse with imagination and make-believe. Story Pocket Theatre was set up in 2013 from a passion to produce beautiful, wonderful and magical theatre for families.

Allegra Galvin, Director of Quarterhouse, says, “We couldn’t have chosen a better Christmas show to brighten up the festive season in Folkestone and East Kent. The response so far has been really encouraging and we are sure that our young friends and their families will thoroughly enjoy this great production that will take them to a magical journey.” of

Tickets cost £8 for adults, £7 for children. There is also an affordable family ticket for 2 adults and 2 children for only £25. The Nutcracker is suitable for all ages. The Nutcracker will be at Folkestone Quarterhouse on Saturday 20, Sunday 21, Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 December 2014 at 2.30pm every day.
