CAROLER and VENDOR – Costume Information

 Performance Costume:  All costume pieces are numbered.  Costume numbers are assigned at your costume fitting.  You will wear the same costume for all of your performances.

 Performance Hairstyle:  Your hairstyle depends on the costume you are wearing and type of hat that is part of your costume.  This hairstyle will be assigned at your costume fitting.

Performance Makeup:  All performance makeup must be applied prior to dancers entering the theater for dress rehearsals and performances.  Parents will be responsible for doing their own dancer’s makeup.  Below is the list of makeup required for Ballet West Nutcracker.  Dancers are allowed to use comparable brands, but the color must be the same.  Please reference the above photos for makeup.
