Thank you Mommy Nearest for including My First Nutcracker as one of your 12 Best Holiday Shows for NY Families!
My First Nutcracker
The classic Nutcracker isn’t perfect for all age groups, but this rendition at New York City Children’s Theater is a fantastic first introduction. A 50-minute, kid-friendly show (best for ages 3 to 8), this ballet follows Clara and the Prince as they travel to a magical Christmas wonderland complete with whimsical decorations, sweet treats, dancing flowers and one pesky mouse.
This season, audiences fell in love with the Girl and Buddy from NYCCT’s hit show Taste the Clouds, and today the Girl and Buddy are going to read you the book Planting a Rainbow! Then make a craft and go on a scavenger hunt!
A Big Mooncake for Little Star was inspired by The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival which is a holiday celebrated in China and Vietnam. Join Caitlyn to learn more about the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival and then play a guessing game!
