Mouse King, a delightfully entertaining family-friendly production, revisits the story of the seasonal favorite The Nutcracker from the mice point of view. The tale chronicles the story of prince Mouserick, the future ruler of the Kingdom of Sweets, and his struggles with Krakatuck, the human who wants to get rid of all vermin and become the king himself. The court magician Astrolog guides the young mouse king along the way and through some highly entertaining encounters and musical adventures.
â€œWeâ€™re excited about bringing Mouse King back this year,â€ offers MacNeal. â€œThe reaction from the crowd during the performances last year plus the feedback we received after indicated to us that we have something truly special.â€ Says Camacho: â€œIâ€™m honored to once again be working with Noel in bringing a new holiday tradition back to life. Weâ€™re looking forward to this yearâ€™s run.â€
The cast also includes Jim Henson Company alum James Wojtal, Jr., puppeteer and stage veteran Arlee Chadwick, along with child actors, professional actors and puppets. The 2013 original cast recording featuring 13 original songs by Camacho is available online at www.MouseKingMusic.com. For more information, visit www.JimCamacho.com.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
