Ramonda Huff writes new version of Nutcracker for the Oswego Players

Ramonda Huff

OSWEGO - The Oswego Players is producing a new spin on the classic tale of the Nutcracker written by Oswego County resident Ramonda Huff. Drosselmeyer’s Nutcracker is directed by Amy C. Metz. It is based on the story by ETA Hoffman “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” and Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Ballet.

The writing of Drosselmeyer’s Nutcracker was Huff’s capstone project for her homeschool studies. Huff learned about her own writing process while working on this play. Huff in her own words explains her writing experience, “I tried to write a little every day, and immediately I fell far behind and I wasn’t writing entertaining scenes. Once I realized how far behind, I was, I took a day off school and wrote four scenes in one sitting. After that, my mom and I decided that the daunting challenge of writing a play was a lot easier for me to get through if we just blocked out a day every few weeks for me to just write all day. Once I figured that out, it was fun! I loved writing the characters, and I loved reading snippets of what I had just written to my friends and family for their input! I couldn’t have done it without their support, especially my mom’s help and support!”
