    Important Dates:
    Show Dates TBA
    First Cast Meeting: TBA

    The Fine Print:

    Performance fees are due at the first cast meeting and are non-refundable once rehearsals start.

    Dancers cast in the show must either be enrolled in a dance class at TheRAP or another local studio. If at a different studio, please submit a proof of training form at the first rehearsal (form will be emailed with casting). As the official training school of Redding City Ballet, dancers enrolled at The Redding Arts Project receive first consideration for roles. In order to qualify as dancing at TheRAP, they must have been enrolled in classes starting in January of the year they want to be in Nutcracker unless situation precludes that (ie new to area) and be committed to dancing with us through the Spring recital.

    Please do not audition if you are not able to commit to rehearsals. For kids it will be about 1-2hrs per week (youngest ~ 45 minutes). For Corps de Ballet it will be 2-4 hrs per week.

    Missed rehearsals will result in a reduced part or being dropped from the cast. Missed rehearsals due to illness won't be counted against the dancer- please let your choreographer know at the time of the absence. Tech week rehearsals are mandatory and missing one (unless due to illness or injury) will result in being cut from the show. Understudies are cast for this reason.
