Pacific Northwest Ballet Brings Nutcracker to the Streets for Third Year!


November 10th, 2008

There’s no greater gift than a magical memory and no holiday entertainment quite like Nutcracker. Pacific Northwest Ballet has brought this cherished Stowell/Sendak classic ballet to the Northwest for 25 years and to celebrate, they’ve brought the joy of Nutcracker to the streets with a 3-D mobile display courtesy of GoMobile Advertising. The “Nut truck” features an enchanting excerpt of Maurice Sendak’s storybook world, complete with stage lighting and characters, while some of Nutcracker’s most memorable music plays to watching crowds through an external sound system.  The truck will be seen at events around King County to bring cheer to families as well as awareness of Pacific Northwest Ballet’s 2008 Nutcracker season that is now underway.

To give back to the community that has supported Nutcracker for 25 years, Pacific Northwest Ballet has teamed with Northwest Harvest, GoMobile Advertising, and Industry Graphics for a food drive coined “Feed the Nutcracker, Feed the Community”. “The creative forces at GoMobile have expertly transformed our Nut Truck into a roving collection site for NW Harvest. This unique collaboration has expanded our collection efforts for NW Harvest, while offering great discounts on Nutcracker tickets–clearly a perfect partnership!” said Lia Chiarelli, PNB’s Associate Director of Marketing and Communications.

Giant Nutcracker bins will be at local grocery store events as well as Northwest Harvest events and the Macy’s Holiday Parade on Friday, November 28th to collect food for local families in need.  Upcoming events include:
