Documentary creators awarded $10K grant
Creators of a behind-the-scenes documentary of “Newport Nutcracker at Rosecliff” were recently awarded a $10,000 grant by the Froliech Foundation. “Dreaming of Sugarplums” is a film that goes backstage at the Gilded Age mansion and looks at the immersive experience of young dancers who join the professional production. The ballet is a production of the Island Moving Company, and the documentary was produced by Jamestown resident Elizabeth Congdon. This is the second time the foundation has supported the film.
