Austin American-Statesman - - COMMUNITY NEWS - — Haleigh Svo­boda, amer­i­can-states­man Staff

Bas­trop County Fire Chief Henry Perry will play the role of Mother Gin­ger in Bal­let Austin’s Dec. 14 pro­duc­tion of “The Nutcracker.”

The role of Mother Gin­ger be­ing played by no­table Austin area per­son­al­i­ties is a Bal­let Austin tra­di­tion. The bal­let com­pany wanted Perry to make an ap­pear­ance as Mother Gin­ger in 2011, but he was still oc­cu­pied with wild­fire re­cov­ery ef­forts.

For the 50th pro­duc­tion of “The Nutcracker” by Bal­let Austin, twelve oth­ers will join Perry in mak­ing an ap­pear­ance as Mother Gin­ger, in­clud­ing Pres­i­dent of the Austin Com­mu­nity Col­lege District Richard Rhodes.

Tick­ets are from $15 to $75 and avail­able at bal­letaustin.org.
