Rehearsal Schedule

NUTCRACKER IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND DATES

CRYB’s Nutcracker is a professionally staged production – not a school recital. We have approximately 2 months to teach, stage and polish the performance. We therefore require all cast members to commit to all rehearsals and performances.

 

REHEARSALS:

With the exception of theatre week the majority of Nutcracker rehearsals will be held on Saturdays and Sunday afternoons between 1:00 and 6:00pm. Depending on your child’s role, rehearsal can be a little as 30 minutes to as much as 2-1/2 hours. Some advanced roles may also rehearse on weekday evenings. A possible rehearsal may be scheduled on Columbus Day and / or Veterans Day.

Please let us know in advance about any UNAVOIDABLE conflicts (for example school concerts) so that these are taken into consideration when confirming rehearsal schedules.

Performances are School Show Thursday, Dec. 13 10:00 am / Opening Night Friday, Dec. 14 7:30 pm / Matinee Saturday, Dec. 15 2:00 pm
