The Dreaded Nutcracker season

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me information on Nutcracker opportunities in the NYC area for a tall 14 year-old girl with a bit of pointe? The Purchase Nutcracker is gone, and we know about one in Stamford CT (are there others?) plus Petrelli's Yorkville Nutcracker. Are there other quality productions with open casting in the NYC area, esp Westchester, Conn, or northern NJ? LI is tougher to get to.

Contact/audition information (with or without comment) would be appreciated, as well as any experiences you may have had that would lead to your recommendation of a particular production.

NPBT (New Paltz Ballet Theatre) located in New Paltz NY is having their audition this weekend.

The production is held in the 1869 Bardavon Opera House in Poughkeepsie NY. about 2 hrs north of NYC.They do 7 performances the first weekend of December.

Artistic Directors are both former NYCB dancers.

Peter and Lisa Naumann.With their ties to NYCB they always have the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Cavalier being dancers (principals) from city ballet. The remainder of the cast is local dancers. Last year they were

blessed with a student from SAB in the cast.

Contact would be 845-255-0044 and ask for Peter Naumann for details.

There also is a web site for the theatre at :

www.clix.to/npbt with some audition information.

Rehearsals are most likely for this age gal Saturday pm and Sundays.I may add there is a very strict committment for the dancers.
