AUDITION RESULTS!

Congratulations to everyone who came to the audition! We are very pleased with our cast list and can’t wait to get started!  Please look for your number or name.  Every dancer gets two parts and many of the older girls get more plus understudy other parts.  If you can’t find your parts, we could have made an error and we want you to contact us right away. NUTCRACKER ACCEPTANCE FORMS ARE DUE IMMEDIATELY.  The Acceptance Form is your formal contract to participate in Nutcracker. Please submit the digital form by TUESDAY, Sept 28th.

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE: A detailed rehearsal and costume fitting schedule will be posted this week.  The schedule will remain the same “for the most part”.  Dances won’t change the day they rehearse (like bounce between Saturday and Sunday), but might vary in starting and ending time within their given day. The schedule for the weekend will be released every Monday, please make sure you also review it before you come, as changes may occur and will be put in red.
