John Paul Mitchell Systems Co-Founder and CEO John Paul DeJoria took a turn this season as Mother Ginger in Ballet Austin’s annual production of The Nutcracker.

The Nutcracker is a classic Christmas play about a girl named Clara who is given a Nutcracker doll by her uncle. At night the toys come to life. Mother Ginger is a grandmother whose skirt hides children dressed as bon bons. Different personalities in the Central Texas area play Mother Ginger each year.

Lance Armstrong, Michael Dell, Gov. Ann Richards, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and many others have donned the Mother Ginger costume in the past.
