Nutcracker Cast Rehearsal & Performance Info
Performance opportunities are for dancers in levels 1A and higher and MBC welcomes any enrolled ballet student to participate in the performance. To be part of the cast dancers must complete a Nutcracker Performance Agreement. Dancer cast in the production will pay a $20 performance fee that will help with the cost of altering, maintaining and cleaning the costumes used by the dancers.
Casting is always done by the Director and is final. Casting is typically double or triple cast. Dancers that have been cast are expected to attend rehearsals and costume fittings that are in addition to their scheduled class times. Dancers and parents should take that into consideration before signing up to participate. Dancers that miss more than two rehearsals may be removed from the performance. Rehearsal schedules are posted online.
There are many backstage opportunities for parents at all these performances. Each family is required to sign up for one volunteer opportunity in order for the dancer to participate. Only parents that have signed up for a backstage duty will be allowed backstage.
