Nutcracker Campaign Donors

Ballet West thanks the following foundations, individuals, and corporations who made donations in support of a brand-new physical production of Willam Christensen’s The Nutcracker. Over the course of three years, these generous community members made gifts to underwrite the construction of new costumes, scenery, and set pieces. The new Nutcracker production, with donors’ names sewn into or stenciled onto many of the new production elements, debuted at the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre in December 2017.

As of November 2018
