The Nutcracker Musical Play

The Nutcracker Musical Play 
Bad Wolf Press
Downloadable Musical Play with Album Sheet Music

This version of the Nutcracker story uses the famous music from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite, complete with silly lyrics! The show works great both as a holiday play or just for fun.

All of the music in this show comes from the actual Nutcracker Suite by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky! Bad Wolf Press has picked the best songs, rearranged them in different styles, and added hilarious lyrics. Audiences will love the familiar tunes with their Bad Wolf spruce-up.


When Marie receives a Nutcracker from her eccentric godfather, she has no clue that she'll soon be involved in an epic dance-off between the Prince of the Dollies and the seven-headed Mouse King. This is an even-more-fractured version of the already-silly story made famous by the Nutcracker ballet (no tights required!). Our retelling covers both the events made famous by the ballet and the omitted parts of the original story by ETA Hoffmann. Free of holiday references, the show can be used any time of year, or dolled up as a celebration of the holiday of your choice!

  *30-minute musical play for grades 2-6
  *Includes the script, teacher's guide, and vocal & instrumental versions of each song
  *Simple to do - no music or drama experience needed!
