Max & Ruby in the Nutcracker Suite


When my kids were small they adored Max & Ruby on Nickelodeon. My girls still enjoy seeing live entertainment and Centennial Hall, London, has often been a space where we built happy family memories. If you ask me Centennial Hall is the perfect size for events that are somewhat intimate, welcoming, warm and family friendly. Our last show might have been The Backyardigans there I think.  Over the past decade there have been many great Koba Entertainment productions witnessed and experienced by our family. There’s something about these entertaining productions that makes kids of us all.

Max & Ruby, the brother sister duo that enchant children who are toddlers and preschoolers, with their daily hijinks on television, are embarking on a holiday season tour. How exciting and perfect is that? In London, Koba Entertainment’s Max & Ruby in Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite will hit Centennial Hall November 20th. There are numerous scheduled performances as the brother sister team tour Canada. What’s lovely about this performance is the fact that something as traditional and lovely as The Nutcracker Suite story is now engaging and accessible to younger crowds. What a great way to get your children hooked on live theatre. This type of early experience can be a great gateway into lifelong appreciation of classical music. The Nutcracker Suite is set to Tchaikovsy. I personally have always felt the arts are an essential part of my children’s lives and I work hard to enrich their childhood and youth with opportunities to grow and experience theatre, visual arts and music. Never to young or too old for Tchaikovsky.

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.
