Max & Ruby bring to life a wonderful tradition this holiday season as they take to the stage their most magical performance yet! Inspired by one of the greatest musical scores ever composed - Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite - the beloved bunny siblings star in Koba Entertainment's brand new musical production Max & Ruby in the Nutcracker Suite.

It's Christmas Eve, and Ruby is busy trimming the tree, while Max is chasing the delicious scent of Grandma's freshly baked gingerbread cookies! A knock at the door reveals a huge parcel from their Great Uncle Drosselmeyer. As the package is unwrapped, Ruby realizes that each new toy is from the story of the Nutcracker Ballet, including a Nutcracker doll!

As grandma reads the story of the Nutcracker, their imaginations whisk them away to a magical land where they become characters in the beloved ballet. Dancing, singing and delicious treats follow, as the bunny pair experiences the wonder and excitement of the classic Nutcracker story. Whether it was the sweets, or their lively imaginations, the bunny siblings head off to bed with visions of candy canes dancing in their heads!

Max & Ruby's adventure, guided by the classic notes of Tchaikovsky's masterpiece, is full of delectable dance and holiday magic perfect for the whole family.

What a fantastic treat! Lil J was extremely excited and couldn't stop talking about Max & Ruby before, during and after the show. I wasn't sure what to expect but I can honestly say that I was thoroughly impressed! The show started out with a few elves dancing and getting the audience engaged by singing the Max & Ruby "jingle". This sure got Lil J's eyes bright and put a huge smile on his face. He got up, kneeled on his chair and leaned forward for the rest of the show. Our favourite parts were watching the characters from the Nutcracker come to life in the form of beautiful dancers and ballerinas performing graceful routines right before our very eyes. I also loved how they had dances dedicated to an array of cultures. Lil J's favourite parts were, not surprisingly, any scene that featured Max & Ruby.

What a great show! My four year old loved it, thought the ballet dancers were amazing and didn’t want it to end. I enjoyed the high quality dancers - what a great way to expose your child to the arts. Would definitely recommend to a friend!

Audience Review

I spent the entire time watching my daughter watch the show and it brought me to tears a number of times. The joy in her eyes and the smile on her face as she watched in sheer amazement, the genuine enthusiasm, as this normally shy and reserved almost four year old sang, clapped, cheered and danced at the end of the show were absolutely thrilling for me to watch. So from the bottom of my heart I thank you and your entire team for the wonderful evening that I got to share with my little girl.
