The reviewer of The Nutcracker: SWEET! did not do his or her homework. Yes, the show was not polished, had gaps and gaffes, but it was a wonderful example of what can be done with willing participants. For several months The Warehouse Company advertised for ANY child to come for FREE dance lessons in Columbus, Starkville, and West Point and at the end, participate in the Christmas show. This is what we watched, and it was WONDERFUL! I would suggest that if the reviewer wants to watch a traditional version with traditional music, go to a traditional ballet company’s presentation. This show was exactly as advertised and I applaud all that were involved. No, I had no child performing, in fact, the only people I have ever met were Joe St. John and Edwina Williams. Thank you again Warehouse Company – that was an amazing endeavor!
