Zombelina is back and is preparing for her next ballet recital: The Nutcracker. Zombelina is trying out for her dream role as Clara, but so is her friend Lizzie. When Zombelina gets the role, Lizzie is sad but also happy for Zombelina. The night of the recital, Grandpa Phantom tries to play a few of his tricks and Zombelina and Lizzie must work together to stop this trickster and keep the show going. Their teamwork and friendship make the night a stellar success.
Once again, Kristyn Crow and Molly Idle bring Zombelina to life in this Christmas adventure. Now that she is a part of the dance company, Zombelina has made some really good friends and faces the challenge of being chosen for a role both her and her friend wanted. Lizzie and Zombelina are a great example of celebrating with your friends in their accomplishments and being humble in asking for help when you need it. Zombelina Dances the Nutcracker is a fantastic holiday edition.
