Sesame Street veteran Noel MacNeal and renowned South Florida composer Jim Camacho, join the 2015 cast in the production of Mouse King, a delightfully entertaining, family-friendly musical conceived by MacNeal and featuring original music written by Camacho.
The children’s musical, which retells the story of the seasonal favorite The Nutcracker from the mice’s point of view, debuted in 2013 with two sold-out shows, prompting the crew to add two more shows last year.
This year’s production, featuring MacNeal’s team of professional puppeteers from New York City, and a collection of unforgettable songs, promises to bring the mouse magic back to the hearts of the young and old, just in time for the holidays.
Performances at the Mandelstam Theater, 8530 SW57 Ave. in South Miami, are Thursday, Dec. 10, 10 a.m. (exclusive show for area schools); Friday, Dec. 11, 7 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 12, 3 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 13, 3 p.m.
