MOUSE KING Returns to Miami for a Seventh Holiday Season


Family-friendly holiday tradition plays at The Mandelstam Theater, Miami’s best kept secret, December 13 – 15 and 20 – 22, 2019

South Miami, FL – November 19, 2019 – With all of the holiday bustle, travel, and Christmas shopping,It’s easy to forget the reason for the season. Fortunately, MOUSE KING is here again to remind us that the “Key to Christmas” – and all of the holidays, really – is love. MOUSE KINGis written by Sesame Street and Jim Henson Company veteran Noel MacNeal and award-winning singer / songwriter Jim Camacho. The musical will play at The Mandelstam Theater (8530 SW 57th Ave, South Miami, 33143) for two weekends during the height of the holidays.

“I feel lucky and grateful that this show is still such an exciting adventure that kids continue to look forward to,” says Camacho. “We invite people to share in the positive message of hope that the show offers, and learn about what the true key to Christmas really is.” Jim also wrote the musicals Fools’ Paradise, which enjoyed a run off-Broadway, The Cavie Islanders and the Troll, as well as many others.

MOUSE KING revisits the story of The Nutcracker as told from the point of view of the mice. With master puppeteers and guest artists from New York City, some of whom appear regularly on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Mystery Science Theater 3000, along with a cast of talented child actors from the Miami area, MOUSE KING brings an imaginative twist on the Nutcracker to life. Due to six consecutive years of sell outs and by popular demand, this year’s production will enjoy a second weekend of performances.

The performance schedule is as follows:

Friday, December 13th, 7 p.m.
Saturday, December 14th, 2 p.m.
Sunday, December 15th, 2 p.m.
Friday, December 20th, 7 p.m.
Saturday, December 21st, 2 p.m.
Sunday, December 22nd, 2 p.m.

Singer-songwriter Camacho, who co-founded 1990s garage / alternative rock band The Goods, has released four full-length solo albums, more than two dozen videos and singles, and created a web series called Adventures in Songwriting.
