The Sunshine Coast’s Coasting Along Theatre Society will be holding their auditions for their 6th presentation of the perennial favorite ballet, The Nutcracker. Auditions will be held at the Coast Academy of Dance, in Sechelt, on Sunday Sept. 10.
The rehearsals commence on Sept. 16 and continue each weekend until the performances at Raven’s Cry Dec. 16 – Dec. 19. Most performers will rehearse either Saturday or Sunday, until late November, and then both Saturday and Sunday may be required. With rehearsals held only on weekends it makes it easy for dancers from across the province to participate in this spectacular production.
“The Nutcracker has parts for all levels of dancers – from the smallest mouse, to the ethereal Sugar Plum Fairy. We are looking for all calibre of dancers,” said Kathleen Holmes, Artistic Director.
Meanwhile, Tim Horton’s “smile cookie campaign” will be donating 100 per cent of the proceeds to The Nutcracker. You can order cookies to be delivered Sept. 11-17.
