Registration open for The Nutcracker children auditions

Ballet West’s The Nutcracker, the longest running production of this iconic ballet in the United States will hold open auditions for children on August 25th at the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre.

Last year, 600 children from across the American west auditioned to be cast in one of the four casts adding up to 350 roles for boys and girls. They joined the notable ranks of tens-of-thousands of Nutcracker alumni who have danced throughout its 62-year Utah history.

After last year’s $3-million dollar investment in upgrading the sets, costumes, and special effects, this dazzling production returns with much anticipation after the highly successful and critically lauded unveiling. Parents and guardians can register students with dance training, (at least one year’s experience is recommended), between ages 8 and 18 years old and girls between 4’0” –5’11” and boys 4’0” and 6’0”.
