Congratulations to all of the dancers who auditioned for our production of the Nutcracker. It takes our choreographers no less than a few weeks to create the final cast list. Upon completion, the cast list will be posted to the website. Shortly after the cast list has been posted, the rehearsal schedule will be posted online. Please check the website regularly throughout the Nutcracker season for updates and changes to the rehearsal schedule.
Regarding Dancer Absences
As a reminder, performers may have two excused absences from September 8th to November 17th. If a third rehearsal is missed during this time she will be replaced by the understudy and in turn, become the understudy for the dance. Each part in the Nutcracker will have at least 1 understudy. (Understudies must come to every rehearsal as though they were in the dance). After Saturday, November 17th, dancers may not miss any rehearsals. If a dancer misses a rehearsal after November 17th until the show, they will be replaced with the understudy. If dancers leave early or arrive late to a rehearsal, they may be considered as absent and be replaced by the understudy. (This at the choreographer’s discretion).
- Rehearsals will be on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons from September 8th – November 17th.
- As of Saturday, November 17th rehearsals will be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as needed.
- There are Dress Rehearsals at CVDA on November 25th, December 1st, December 2nd, and December 8th.
