Traditionally, ticket sales from the "Nutcracker" production fund student scholarships. We believe that passion, skill and dedication — not financial circumstance — should determine who can access the high-caliber training that UNCSA offers. This year, consider making a gift to support students who will shape the future of the arts.
Adapted specifically for film through the innovation and expertise of the schools
of Dance, Design & Production, Filmmaking and Music, the “Nutcracker” film is a collaboration of more than 300 students, faculty, staff
and alumni. This production truly showcases the resilient spirit of our creative community
