Program FAQs
Is this the ballet version of The Nutcracker?
This script was adapted from the original book and ballet, and was written as a musical play for children. It is not a ballet.
Could my child be "cut" after auditions?
Every child who registers will be an active member of the cast. The auditions are used to help assign roles, and there are no "cuts."
My child doesn't have any theater experience. Can he/she still be part of the show?
Yes! All experience levels are welcome!
My child will have to miss some rehearsals. Will that be a problem?
We will be happy to try to work with any child who would like to be part of the show.  Please contact us and we'll do our best to find a way to work with your schedule.
