27 Years in the Making: “Nutcracker – the Mousical” Comes to Old Town Temecula Community Theater.
The Temecula Theater Foundation is proud to announce the production of the new musical, “Nutcracker – The Mousical” by Bobbi Boes and Beverly Stephenson. “Nutcracker – The Mousical” is developed from characters in the Nutcracker tales and based on Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker music. The musical features lyrics and a book by successful screenwriter Bobbi Boes and children’s book author Beverly Stephenson. Broadway veteran Don York and rising musical star Grande Coles have adapted the music.
The show will run from November 4th to November 12th at the Old Town Temecula Theater. Tickets are on sale now and are priced between $30 and $45, with opening night premiere tickets ranging from $70 to $90. The premiere tickets include a red-carpet photo walk and a very special “Land of Sweets” after-party. The entire opening week-end there will be a Nutcracker Market with crafters and vendors for a bit of retail therapy from Noon – 7 pm on Saturday and Sunday, November 4 & 5. The pre-show premiere events begin at 1 pm the performance begins at 2 pm.
The musical is set in the town of Hamelin in the 1800s, where Clara, the goddaughter of inventor and Pied Piper Drosselmeir, must find a way to bring back the village children who have been transported to a magical land where the children are slowly turning into candy and the mice have grown and are about to overrun the land. The production promises to be a “treat” for both children and adults alike as they follow Clara’s journey to save the children.
Time is running out for both the children and the ticket-buying public.
This is not your mother’s Nutcracker – it is so much more FUN. With an exciting new approach to story and song, this musical promises to be a classic in the making.
The cast is led by Fisher Kaake as Drosselmeir (Bert in Mary Poppins, Pechanga Theater: Phil Davis in White Christmas, La Mirada Theater); Alexandra McMahon as Clara (Fiona in Shrek, and Vivianne in Legally Blonde, Paloma Valley Theater; Michelle Cohen as Mother Stahlbaum (Mrs. Van Dyke, Welcome to Sleepy Hollow Oceanside Theater Company); Beth Langlois as the Mouse Queen(Miss Silverpeal, Mozart’s Impresario, Genesis Opera; The Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors, Riverside Light Opera); Ryan Stetson as Franz; Omari Duane as Princess Pirlipat & Andrew Felkins as Reggie Rhatt.

We are waiting on 2 headshots…and they are very important. One is Fisher Kaake/Drosselmeir and the other is Michelle Cohen who is playing Mother Stahlbaum. I realize you wouldn’t be using all these photos but if we can only use 2…then use Alexandra McMahon and Ryan Weston (Clara & Franz). If 3 photos…add Fisher Kaake/Drosselmeir (that I am sending). Other combos:
Michelle, Colin Omari, Alexandra (the Stahlbaum family)
Beth Langlois, Alexandra, Ryan – Mouse Queen and Clara & Franz.
