Logistics Lead, Brett Feddersen

Staging The Nutcracker and the spring production takes a lot of stuff. Some of it is what you'd expect - like costumes and props. Some of it is unusual - a dragon, an electric scooter tricked out to look like a ship, and a cannon. The Logistics Crew brings it all to Krannert Center for the Performing Arts where their stage hands and our volunteers work together to unload trucks and move everything to the Tryon Festival Theater stage.

Here are some of the ways you might help:

  • Prior to and following the performances, drive a 16-foot truck to Chicago to pick up/return lighting for the production.
  • Assist in loading props, sets, and additional items housed at CU Ballet.
  • Help with loading in props, sets and additional items at Krannert (Nutcracker) or the Virginia Theatre (spring production).
  • Unpack and assemble props and additional scene parts.
  • Following the performances, load out at Krannert or Virginia Theatre and unload at CU Ballet.
