OnFocus – 2020 marks Main Street Conservatory of Dance’s 18th year producing “The Nutcracker” ballet for the Marshfield community, but this is the first year the program will have a “virtual” audience.

With a cast of 75 and a small backstage crew, the performance is a holiday favorite every year. Director Heather Conrad shares that in a typical year, there are three performances at the Marshfield High School auditorium. This year it wasn’t possible to perform live for an audience, but the studio found a way to keep the tradition alive. They borrowed curtains and other tools to help transform their studio into a stage.

“We wanted to give the girls the opportunity to dance,” said Conrad. “We decided that we had the space in the studio and we would make the best of it.”

The performance was filmed by TriMedia and will be available for viewing and download on Wednesday, December 16.
