A Father's Holiday Wish: Washington Ballet's Nutcracker to Be Broadcast to U.S. Troops Worldwide
05 Dec 2007 -- The Washington Ballet is granting a holiday wish for Lt. Col. Frank Johnston, a Marine currently serving in Iraq. His daughter, Isabelle Johnston, is performing in TWB's The Nutcracker for the first time this year. Knowing that he would not be home in time to see Isabelle perform live, Lt. Col. Johnston contacted the Ballet to see if there was still some way he could see his daughter's debut as a Mouse.
