Summer is here! The year is more than half over and before you know it, holiday time! Which is why this is the perfect time to get a jump start on the season with a little Christmas in July and start reserving your backdrops for Nutcracker while the Snow Landscapes are still hot. To ensure that your Nutcracker ballet is a success and your stage dressed accordingly with all the essential scenes, now is when you will find the most drops available for your show. We love to hear from of customers but hate having to turn people away because a particular backdrop is unavailable for the time they need. So get things moving like a Nutcracker doll come to life and take advantage while the drops are plentiful.
Oh! You do want to get started on your show but you seem to be having trouble deciding what scenes you want and have no idea where to begin? No worries! Here are a few of the items we have that will help you march in the right direction.
If you want to make sure you open the scene right, make sure to take a look at all the Parlor/ Palace drops Grosh Backdrops and Projections has to offer! The Stahlbaum Christmas Eve celebration will look ravishing with one of our various Victorian style or elegant ballroom settings for all the festivities as the toys are passed out and we are introduced to the Nutcracker.
Later that evening when all have gone to bed, sneak out to the parlor with Clara and as the clock strikes midnight, watch the mice army , gingerbread and tin soldiers duke it out under the Growing Christmas Tree. Or, you can create this same effect of the Christmas tree getting larger with Toys Under the Tree or the with any one of our Toyshop themed drops.
For the final scene of Act I, have your snowflakes dance under the moonlight and watch as the Nutcracker transforms into a handsome prince with one of our Night Snow Landscapes. Grosh has the best scenic backings to create your pine forest on stage. You can also create depth in your performance with one of our Snow Leg drops, one for each side (left and right) of the staging area.
As Clara and the Nutcracker make their way to the Land of the Sweets, ACT II, we have the sweetest items just for you! Show off your mighty Candy empire with our Kingdom of the Sweets backdrops in two different styles. Satisfy the audience sweet tooth with our colorfully delicious backings that are sure to make your performance a hit! If you can’t find an available Kingdom of the Sweet drop for the time you need don’t worry!! We have several sugary scenes that will work just as well for all the dances and waltz that will take place. For instance, Grosh thought ahead and made sure to create various painted designs and styles for Nutcracker with our Village and Land of the Sweets, Fantasy Candyland as well as a Lace Candy land and Candy Cane Forest and Leg sets that will fit the sugar plum world you would like to create.
No need to wait!! You can put your Nutcracker orders together today! Our painted backdrop inventory is sure to sell out and we don’t want anyone to be left out in the cold and have to face a bare stage for Christmas. Give Grosh a ring and we will be more than happy to assist you in putting together an impressive Nutcracker display. And why stop there? Nutcracker 2020 will be here in a blink of an eye.
