It’s Christmas Eve and party time! There are presents, a magician and a magnificent tree. One of the gifts is a Nutcracker Doll, but the children soon tire of it and it is thrown out, broken and forgotten.
Outside in the snow, Marie has been watching. She rescues the doll and takes care of it, and, as in all the best fairy tales, on the stroke of midnight he transforms into a brave prince!
Just then the evil Mouse King and his Mousy Minions attack! Exciting adventures, a scrumptious journey to the Land of Sweets and a magical moment in the Magician’s Cave follow our heroes as they try to stop the Mice spoiling Christmas!
With magical characters, exciting action and comic twists this version of the well-loved story brings the spirit of Christmas alive for all the family.
