Auditions for The Nutcracker

AUDITIONS for Greensboro Ballet's 2019 "The Nutcracker"

(Plus everyone that is cast will also be our fun "Mutcracker")

What do I need to do in order for my child to Audition for The Nutcracker?

1. Download Greensboro Ballet's Nutcracker Rules & Regulations HERE. Read very, very carefully. Both dancer and parent must sign this document and bring with them to the Audition. Please fill out our Dancer Measurement Form (click HERE) and bring it with you, as well.

2. At least one parent of each dancer that wishes to audition must attend one of our Nutcracker Parent Meetings. These meetings will be held in the GB studios on:

Wednesday, September 25 at 7:30pm  or  Thursday, September 26 at 7:30pm

3. Bring your signed form and dancer to the Nutcracker Auditions on Saturday, September 28th. Also, your Nutcracker Costume Fee ($60) is due at the time of audition, as well. If your dancer is not cast, we will give you a full refund.
