Nicholas Pollock is a lighting designer and proud graduate of the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama Class of 2021. Originally from South Florida, the majority of his experience is in designing for musical theatre, opera, and dance productions. His work is heavily influenced by an extensive creative process that combines in-depth character analysis with a thought provoking concept grounded in art, culture, and music. Nick is excited by new work development and is drawn to work that brings attention to unique and diverse identities. He also enjoys projects that allow him to reimagine classics with exciting creative twists that explore their relevance in the 21st century.
Outside of the theatre, Nick is passionate about art history, photography, and great food. He is intrigued by the meaning of images, and how they impact our storytelling. This enthusiasm for media has driven Nick to further refine his process with the inclusion and integration of media and projection with lighting on many projects.
