    Was wondering if there was going to be a Nutcracker here. One of my faves and I was missing not seeing it after just moving from toronto

  190. AlanaFriday, December 2nd, 2011 — 3:53pm PST

    i love xmas…..

  191. CameronFriday, December 2nd, 2011 — 5:25pm PST

    My parents took my brother and I to The NutCracker 40 years ago in Toronto, when I was about 10. At dinner my father said he had “tickets” and we were so excited thinking it would be for the Maple Leafs/Canadians hockey game. We were crestfallen to find out it was for the ballet. To top it off, we ran into my French Teacher at the theatre, and she told the class about meeting me there the next day. I was upset with my parents for a long time, but now they are gone and I would tell other parents not to be afraid to take their boys to the ballet (but not on a hockey night).

  192. CarmelleFriday, December 2nd, 2011 — 5:58pm PST

    The Nutcracker is truly a classic. I remember this from when I was a kid!
