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 limited rehearsals for each scene to prepare, so let’s make them count!  Reminder, if you are showing ANY signs of an illness, please contact us and attend rehearsal online through Zoom, do NOT attend rehearsal in person.
