Today is load-in day for The Nutcracker, which means costumes, backdrops, set pieces, and props are being moved into the theater from our studios on W. Gray and our warehouse in the 5th ward. Three 18-wheelers are currently inhabiting the Wortham loading dock as each piece is carefully unloaded, moved to its proper location, and re-assembled on Brown Stage. I was able to snap a few pictures while I was at the theater today to give you an idea of the organized chaos…let’s just say, regardless of our doing this every year for the past 22 years, it’s still not easy. And just think: all of this will be completed and arranged just-so for the curtain to go up on November 27. Click here to see the pictures.
