Wade Walthall is listed in the credits as playing the Nutcracker, when in fact he plays the Nutcracker Prince. The Nutcracker himself is billed in the credits as "Fighting Nutcracker", and is played by Jacob Rice. See more »
I feel great pity for those who have only been able to see this on film, and for the fact that this film is not available on tape or even better DVD. Living only 12 miles from the Seattle Opera House where this particular production is staged each year (to sell out houses) I have seen it both ways. The film has very few effects which don't exist on the stage so when you are seeing the film you are seeing the stage show. As for the story line, this version holds the closest to the original story of any version I have ever seen, and I've seen quite a few. Truly this is a film to be treasured and shared and hopefully the owners of the film will realize this and make it available to the general public once again.
