Rehearsals for The Nutcracker are held Friday afternoons and evening, Saturday afternoons and Sundays from late September and up to production week. All those auditioning for the Nutcracker must be available and able to attend all rehearsals.
Rehearsal schedules are posted (on the studio bulletin board) and emailed well in advanced to all cast members and families. It is the responsibility of all cast members (and families) to check their email and the studio bulletin board regularly for updates and changes. Schedule revisions are always clearly marked, emailed and posted on Mondays or Tuesdays prior to the rehearsal weekend. In general, rehearsals for a particular role are often held on the same day at the same time from week to week. HOWEVER, all cast members must be flexible to schedule changes – whether it is a change in day or time.
Absence from a rehearsal and/or costume fitting, leaving early, and/or arriving late are all grounds for dismissal from the production. The staff of Southern NH Dance Theater and Youth Ballet reserves the right to dismiss and replace any cast member at any time.
