Mother Ginger? Mike Osterhage, is that you?

GMSA meteorologist dresses the part for ‘The Nutcracker' performance

SAN ANTONIO – As part of the San Antonio Ballet’s annual ‘The Nutcracker’ performance, a familiar KSAT-12 face will be playing a fun role this year.

Good Morning San Antonio Meteorologist Mike Osterhage will be all decked out in a wig and make-up to play Mother Ginger.

Osterhage played the role opening night on Friday, but no worries if you missed it, he will reprise his role for the closing show on Dec. 13.

This is not the first time Mike has been able to break out of the studio and have fun with the San Antonio community. Here is Mike flying with the Thunderbirds in 2000.

Remember you can catch Mike alongside, Leslie Mouton and Mark Austin mornings on GMSA from 4:30-7 a.m.
