Fans in Green Bay attending training camp have an opportunity to attend another Packers-related event on Thursday evening as the premiere of Jordy Nelson's television commercial promoting tourism in Wisconsin taking place at the Meyer Theatre in Green Bay at 5:00 p.m.
Directed by Wisconsin native Jerry Zucker of Airplane! fame, the commercial pays homage to the Wizard of Oz and stars Nelson, a native of Kansas.
Tickets are available for $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Tickets include a copy of the new Sports Illustrated coffee table book, “Packers: Green, Gold and Glory,” which retails for $34.95. Tickets can be ordered online at TicketStarOnline.com or by calling 800-895-0071.
The event includes a performance by “Let Me Be Frank’s” Curly Lambeau. Following the premiere of the ad, Nelson and Zucker will hold a Q&A session with the audience.
In the morning, training camp continues with practice taking place at 8:20 a.m. at Ray Nitschke Field. It will be the third of five consecutive days with padded practice for the Packers.
Following today's session, head coach Mike McCarthy will have his press conference streamed live at the team's official website at Packers.com.
