During the Covid-19 pandemic UNCSA decided to transfer our annual stage performance of The Nutcracker to the film stage. This provided us with the opportunity to maintain safety while still being able to bring the greatly anticipated performance to our audiences. It also provided us the chance to design all new sets for the first time in almost 25 years. The timeline was tight, and the project certainly had its challenges, but the ending result was beautiful.
