Fifty art postcards featuring Mouse Prince I from Tacoma City Ballet’s World Premiere “The Nutcracker” can be found at local businesses throughout Tacoma beginning today (March 15). The first person to find the “Mouse of the Month” and bring him to the TCB office will be rewarded with tickets to the ballet’s world premiere production in December. In addition, a grand prize package will be awarded in late November to a lucky contestant who collects all nine mice.
Tacoma City Ballet is encouraging mouse hunters to spread the word about where they find their mice and how much fun their having using #MouseoftheMonth on Twitter or through the March Mouse of the Month event page on Facebook – join in the fun and follow along as those mice get caught!
The “Mouse of the Month” hunt is leading up to Tacoma City Ballet’s world premiere “Prequel to The Nutcracker” opening Dec. 7. The new act involves the Mouse Queen and her seven sons who Christian Elias Drosselmeyer (the magician we know so well from The Nutcracker) must trap.
Tacoma City Ballet’s world premiere will be performed at the Pantages Theater in downtown Tacoma. For further information, contact Melissa Lovejoy Goldman at (253) 2720-4219 or visit www.tacomacityballet.com.
