Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of the annual co-production of the “Nutcracker” directed by Amy Casimir of Strictly Ballet & produced by Trey Casimir of RiverStage! Dancers and non-dancers, kids (age 5+) and adults, girls and boys, are all needed for this fantastic and fun holiday production!

In order to limit the number of auditioners in the building at one time, we are holding auditions on August 22nd by RSVP/appointment only. Please visit Strictly Ballet’s website to sign up for an audition slot and get all the details including audition forms and contact information.

From their website:

“We were prepared to only perform Act 1 until we had all of the right ingredients for a successful 2nd act. The Pandemic changed our plans.
We are determined to put on a production this year, but we want to keep our cast and community healthy. Which means we’ll need to dance in smaller groups in order to be able to maintain social distancing during rehearsals. Luckily the Nutcracker has the ingredients for just such a situation.

We are excited to announce that this year’s production will be ONLY the 2nd act! The 2nd act, also known as the Land of the Sweets, is pure fantasy compared to the Victorian costumed 1st act. The Sugarplum Fairy rules the Land of the Sweets in the Princes’ absence. The Prince returns and tells the tale of how Clara helped him escape the enchantment he was under. In order to celebrate his return and Clara’s bravery, The Sugarplum Fairy announces a celebration with dancing and sweets from each region in the land.

We are looking for dancers and actors age 5 and up to fill the roles of: Angels, Pages, Courtiers, Clara, Prince, Spanish chocolate, Arabian coffee, Chinese tea, Russian peppermint, Danish Marzipan, Mother Ginger and her Bon Bons, and dewdrops and flowers for the “waltz of the flowers.”

RiverStage currently has no other auditions scheduled, but for updates about the rest of our 2020-21 season, please sign up for our mailing list using the Contact Us form, check back here often, and/or follow RiverStage on Facebook to get announcements about auditions as they come!

Thanks, and we’ll see you next time!
