Arriving just in time for the holidays, Mouse King – a delightfully entertaining family friendly musical – will make its World Premiere with two special performances at Miami’s Mandelstam Theater (8530 SW 57th Ave, South Miami) on Friday, December 13 at 7 p.m. and on Saturday, December 14 at 3 p.m.
Conceived and created by renowned puppeteer Noel MacNeal – a leading light behind television’s Sesame Street and Disney’s Bear in the Big Blue House – and featuring original music written by South Florida’s highly acclaimed musician and composer Jim Camacho, Mouse King revisits the story of the seasonal favorite The Nutcracker, while adding an entirely different twist.
This original stage spectacular tells the story of The Nutcracker from an as-yet unseen perspective – the point of view of the mice characters – and, in the process, gives that perennial classic an imaginative new emphasis through the lens of modern musical theater. A cast of professional performers and puppeteers and supported by a group of local child actors has been specially selected to bring this familyfriendly holiday production to life.
Tickets for Mouse King cost $20 and can be obtained via Brown Paper Tickets: www.mousekingmusical.brownpapertickets.com or 800.838.3006.
