Auditions for the 2017 Nutcracker will be Saturday, May 20th starting at 1:30pm in the Keet Commons.
They will last several hours - the exact time will depend on how many people show up. Both dancers and actors need to attend. Actors will be done first, then the younger kids; the older kids will be the last to go home. We will be done no later than 6pm.
Kids in the Nutcracker must be in second grade at the time of the auditions. All dancers (except grown ups) must be taking class twice a week (any style) next year.
Most rehearsals meet once a week - usually (but not always) on the weekends.
Our tentative performance dates are December 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
There are mandatory rehearsals on the first three Saturdays in November. Depending on your part, you do not have to attend all three. We do not rehearse over Thanksgiving Break.
There will be an application to fill out before the audition. You do not need to prepare anything. It's pretty painless actually.
As we get closer, you will receive an outline of the story and the highlights of the 2017 production.
Many thank to Susan Brandt-Ferguson for chaperoning the auditions!
