As Miami City Ballet’s stage manager, Nicole Mitchell is a hard girl to track down. To find Nicole, one must venture deep into the theater’s core, behind the curtains, fancy lights and scenery, and into the elusive prompt corner. Here — in the area adjacent to the proscenium — is Nicole’s domain, where she cues the dancers and stagehands and coordinates all of the behind-the-scenes action. This week, Nicole will document the intricacies involved in producing a large scale performance when she takes over our Instagram feed during the company’s performances of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™ in Naples.
Fun fact about Nicole: She is also an athlete! Nicole held the record at her high school for long-jump and triple-jump. Way to go, Nicole!
