Please submit this form ASAP to the studio if you would like to be involved with The Nutcracker alternatives this year.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of our 2020 production of The Nutcracker. To bring The Nutcracker to life requires many dancers, students, musicians, production crew, and backstage personnel each performance. Their safety, as well as that of our audience members, was our first priority in making this difficult decision.
We know that this decision will be especially disappointing to our seniors and all the VRB students who have looked forward all summer to auditions and with anticipation of being cast in a traditional Nutcracker production.
Our artistic staff is working on different ways we can still bring the magic of The Nutcracker to our community on a smaller scale. Students will be selected by faculty to participate in live performances as well as a virtual story and dance series.
THERE WILL NOT BE A FORMAL AUDITION.
Students interested in participating should complete an audition form and return it to either studio. Forms will be available on the website, Saturday, September 12th. Rehearsals will begin in October.
This will only be the second time, since 1978 that Ms. Heidi has not produced a traditional Nutcracker. Like so many things in 2020, we will have to adapt and stretch our imaginations to come up with a new way of doing things. We are confident that whatever our team comes up with will be fantastic and we look forward to making new traditions.
Plus…We look forward to picking up where we left off with our 2021 Spring Production of Fairy Tale to Fairy Tale!
Ms. Adelle, Ms. Heidi
and the entire VRB faculty
