Staged reading of a frightening musical comedy based on the macabre writings of E.T.A. Hoffmann (THE NUTCRACKER). When the family of an ingenious German clockmaker engages a new nanny to care for the children, a series of bizarre and unnatural events begins to unfold. As the Strauss family is thrust ever deeper into ch aos, the sinister forces at play are revealed – forces from which only the children may be able to save them.
