Terri Gruca as Mother Ginger

Each year, Ballet Austin invites local notables to fill the dress of the favorite Mother Ginger role in each performance of The Nutcracker.

KVUE Anchor Terri Gruca took to the stage in this role at last Friday’s performance. On top of that, she captured some behind-the-scenes footage of her preparations for the role, and was kind enough to share these clips on the KVUE website. Check out the behind-the-scenes footage in the video above, and then watch her perform as Mother Ginger in the video below. Enjoy!
