Talmisays, “Masha flies on the wings of the Dove of Peace around the world seeking peace and harmony. She goes to France, Italy, Africa -- all around the world, and she finds peace and harmony through love.” In Act II Masha and her Nutcracker Prince arrive in the “Land of Peace and Harmony” (traditionally called the Land of Sweets) and celebrate the great heritages of the world including African, Asian, European, Hispanic and Slavic.

About the Saginaw Theatre

The theatre known as the “Showplace of Northeastern Michigan” was facing demolition, but n 2002, the family of Dr. Samuel Shaheen purchased the Temple Theatre and the adjoining three story building which contains a Grand Ballroom, Premier Room, Leopard Lounge and a commercial kitchen. After an investment of more than seven million dollars the “Showplace of Northeastern Michigan” has been returned to her original glory. The Temple just celebrated her 87th Anniversary showcasing the original colors and textures applied in 1927. Gold leafing and hand painted details throughout the entire building add grandeur and intrigue while restoring the Theatre’s much deserved elegance. Several individuals tried to revive the facility but despite their efforts, the Temple was weakening at her 75th birthday. Seats on the main level were chipped and torn, all of the carpet was worn, and the electrical system, from 1927, was overloaded and not large enough to handle the amount of electricity required to operate the theatre. Without heat in the building, one more winter would have drained the Temple of its lifeblood.
