Auditions for the Nutcracker Ballet on Saturday

BRATTLEBORO — Brattleboro School of Dance and the Company of Muses not-for-profit fundraising organization announced they will be holding open auditions for this season's Nutcracker Ballet on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Brattleboro School of Dance.

The audition is open to interested community members, ages 7 and up. They are looking particularly for children and adults for the party scene. For these roles, acting and/or dance experience is preferable but not a requirement. Additionally, there are a variety of other dance roles that will be cast, from advanced beginning through advanced intermediate levels of ballet and character dance. The performances will take place at the New England Youth Theater, 100 Flat St., on Dec. 22 , 23 and 24.

Rehearsals will be held throughout the fall, weekly to begin with, and more frequently as performance dates approach. All cast members must also be available each evening for a week prior to performance dates for tech rehearsals in the theater, as well as for other full cast rehearsals to be announced. Arrive 15 minutes early to Brattleboro School of Dance, 22 High St., on the third floor to fill out contact information forms, and warm up to be ready to start at 1:30 p.m.
