Children battle rotten royal rodents to save the magic of Christmas

Story Pocket Theatre returns to the Mill Studio at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre from Monday, December 29, to Saturday, January 3, with their festive family treat, The Nutcracker.

It’s Christmas and when Clara is given a wooden nutcracker in the shape of a handsome Prince, little does she know she and her brother Fritz are about to be drawn into a great adventure.

The Mouse Queen and the Mouse King have 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 rodents to save the magic of Christmas and restore the Prince to the throne.

But first, Clara and Fritz must learn how to believe…

Story Pocket Theatre was set up in 2013 from a passion to produce theatre for families.

Third Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo said: “I am delighted to be the Patron of Story Pocket Theatre Company. It was apparent straight away that Story Pocket’s focus was on sharing stories in a bright, imaginative way.

“My passion for stories and writing has taken me all over the world and I am lucky enough to see my stories in print and on stage and screen. It was Story Pocket’s passion for story telling that struck me.”
