MOUSE KING returns to the Mandelstam Theater for the eighth holiday season
MOUSE KING is back to remind us that the “Key to Christmas” is love. Designed by Sesame Street and Jim Henson Company veteran Noel MacNeal, and award-winning singer-songwriter and prolific children’s musical theater composer Jim Camacho, the holiday theatrical production will be performed at the Mandelstam Theater (8530 SW 57e Ave, South Miami, 33143) during the pre-vacation period, Friday December 10 through Sunday December 12. The musical did not take place in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions on large indoor gatherings.
“We are very happy to be back this year to tell the story of Mouserick and the company and to share the holiday spirit once again with the South Florida community,” said Camacho. “Now more than ever, the themes of love, family and holiday cheer are extremely relevant and must be heard.” Jim also wrote the musicals Fools’ Paradise, which enjoyed a run off Broadway, The Cavie Islanders and the Troll, The Guru of Gir and several others.
Mouse King reimagines the story of The Nutcracker and tells it from a mouse point of view. Featuring master puppeteers and guest artists from New York, some of whom make regular appearances on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, as well as a cast of talented child actors from the Miami area, MOUSE KING sprinkles an imaginative twist on the classic Nutcracker tale. The show has had a seven-year run of sold-out performances, so purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended.
The performance schedule is as follows:
Friday December 10, 7 p.m.
Saturday December 11, 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Sunday December 12, 1 p.m.
Singer-songwriter Camacho, who co-founded 1990s garage / alternative rock band The Goods, has released four full solo albums, over two dozen videos and singles, and created a web series called Adventures. in Songwriting. He has also written and published music for others in Nashville, working with country music royalty John Carter Cash through music development and publishing company Ab Fab Artists. His latest singles “Going on Faith” and “When the World Stops Spinning” were recorded and produced by Cash at the Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN.
