Nutcracker_design

 11:00 am • Saturday, September 13th 2014
Northshire Bookstore • Saratoga Springs, NY

How much fun is this?! Ideal for any youngster interested in ballet and/or The Nutcracker!

Ballet dancers from Northeast Ballet in their Nutcracker ballet costumes tell the story of The Nutcracker on Saturday at the Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga. They’ll also teach a few simple ballet steps and then send their young audience on a special “Nutcracker Sweets” treasure hunt through the store. Stories and Sweets … pretty good, huh?

It also is a great primer for the Northeast Ballet’s Nutcracker Auditions on September 20th at Proctor’s Theatre. No doubt, this is not a coincidence. All pretty clever.

Here’s a brief  run down on the audition schedule:

    • Noon – 1:00 pm   Childrens’ Roles ~ ages 5 to 8 (must be 5 on 9/20/14)
    • 1:00 – 2:30 pm     Childrens’ Roles ~ ages 9 to 12
    • 2:30 – 3:30 pm     Act One Party Scene ~ Adult Roles Actors/Dancers
    • 3:30 – 5:00 pm     Variations ~ ages 13 and up (ladies bring pointe shoes)

There is a registration fee and done on audition day (so arrive early!). For more information on the Northeast Ballet’s Nutcracker auditions, call (518) 374-0376 or click here.
