Every year for Nutcracker the RWB invites high profile guests to 'walk on' meaning they join the festive celebrations and holiday cheer onstage with the RWB dancers! We've invited Matt Rusch, Winnipeg Goldeyes player to participate in Moulin Rouge ® – The Ballet!
Matt Rusch hails from
Schenectady, New York and has played professional baseball for the past eight
seasons, including last season in Winnipeg for the Goldeyes. Prior to the
coming to Winnipeg, Rusch played in the Detroit Tigers minor league system for
five seasons and two seasons for the Quebec Capitales of the CanAm League. He
was the winning pitcher when the Goldeyes won the American Association Championship
last season. He now makes his home in Winnipeg with his fiancé Amelie Marcoux.
We are so excited to have you join us next week Matt! Keep your eyes peeled for Matt on stage May 1st!
