NUTCRACKER 2018 REHEARSAL SCHEDULE
Please note attendance to rehearsals is vital to having a wonderful, smooth performance. Please be aware only ONE rehearsal can be missed, besides Thanksgiving weekend. If more than ONE rehearsal is missed, you could potentially lose your role in the Nutcracker. We have only 9 rehearsals for each scene to prepare, so let’s make them count! There is only one weekend between Thanksgiving weekend and our Nutcracker performances this year, and with the Holiday Treats shows being that Saturday December 1st, we may add pick up rehearsals on Sunday December 2nd…depending on how the dancing looks at that point.
Rehearsals to be held at Legacy Ballet, 104 Main St. SE, Albany, OR 97321
Call 541-791-9078 or 541-619-4354 if unable to attend a rehearsal. (Remember, you can only miss one!)
