"I think it speaks in a really enchanting, magical way, especially to the children." - Sophia Lee, who performs the role of Clara in Nutcracker.
"Not to toot my own horn (oh if you insist), Andre Lewis, the Artistic Director at the RWB provided some feedback after having watched my performance. He said that my "presence was brilliant", my "comportment was exquisite" and that he "loved how I walked on stage" Oh Andre! Go on!" - Nadia Kidwai, who had the chance to be a walk-on extra for RWB's opening night of Nutcracker.
"For me, seeing the vignettes was slightly surreal - and I mean that in the good way. The three blind mice in their endless circle, the seven dwarves snoring away, Rumpelstiltskin stamping his foot in an eternal rage - these very simple, slightly strange tableaux brought back Christmases past with an almost painful immediacy." - Alison Gillmor, CBC reviewer, reporting on the Eaton's Christmas vignettes at the Children's Museum.
