Santa Clarita Ballet | 2015 Nutcracker

For 15 years I've designed the makeup for this show. This year was off the charts for me because my daughter danced the lead. After helping get the makeup done for all the cast, including my daughter, I was able to sit in the audience for the first time!

15 YEARS OF SANTA CLARITA BALLET SHOW PROGRAMS

I have had the privilege of designing costume makeup and hair for the Santa Clarita Ballet for the past 15 years. It has ranged from the beautiful and elegant Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker to a scarred Captain Hook in Peter Pan. I've included programs from most of the shows (I've lost a few over the years.) I'll be following up with some fun behind the scene photos. If you've danced in any of these productions and would like to share your pictures I would love to display them!

I'm always looking for help with makeup backstage. If you're interested in helping contact me.
