Auditions for Miami City Ballet’s Annual Holiday Spectacular George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker
August 28, 2016 –
On Sunday, August 28, Miami City Ballet will hold auditions at Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach for boys and girls from Palm Beach and Broward Counties who want to participate in the South Florida company’s annual production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®. Each year MCB provides local kids with previous ballet training ages 8 and up with the chance to portray several roles in the production, including party children, angels, polichinelles and even the lead role of Marie. Known for its magnificent scenery and Tchaikovsky’s magical music, the annual production is a highly anticipated staple in Miami City Ballet’s repertoire. Selected children will participate in rehearsals where they will learn and practice the ballet’s choreography and then take the stage with MCB dancers for performances at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.
