Several sections show the Nutcracker as performed in the theatre by the John Hayes O'neill School of Dance. Others show Charlie Chaplin, the Phantom of the Opera, Gene Kelly Singing in the Rain, and characters from The Wizard of Oz. These works can only be viewed by the public at certain times: on voting days, for open school events, or by appointment. Of course, the children who attend the school get to see them all the time!
