Maple Youth Ballet’s production of [the] Nutcracker was such a pleasant surprise! …I was blown away by the professionalism of the production. I have 2 younger children who both were captivated for the entire performance. I think their productions are a steal for the price. Bravo MYB! —Erin R.
The costumes were beautiful and so were the sets…This would definitely be a Nutcracker performance to take your child to share the joy of seeing the Nutcracker for the first-time! If you have the time or are in the Orange County area, make sure to see this show. —momto3bells
