Nutcracker Information & More:
2.5 to 3 yr old classes do not have a recital, but you are welcome to look in the observation window at any time. We also need volunteers to take children to the restroom. PK-JK will have a parent demonstration the last day of class and in spring a studio recital! If you are in PKJK and attending our Nutcracker we invite you to present flowers to Clara or Sugar Plum Fairy at the show end!SK-1st and Level 1
SK-1st & Levels 1 - 8 have the opportunity to participate in our annual performance of Clara & the Nutcracker, December 10th, 2:00pm, at the Cannon Center! These levels also have a spring stage recital.
September 16th is the Mandatory Costume fitting and Meeting with parents. We need your publicity help! Please post titles with your photos: "Susie is having a fitting for Clara & the Nutcracker at the Cannon!"
$95 Nutcracker fee is due at the time of costume fitting and meeting, by check payable to our non-profit "Children's Ballet Theater". Ticket sales cover only a small portion of expenses for this professional production. Your fee helps support the presentation of the Nutcracker each year at a quality venue, and helps cover costs of student rehearsals at the theater, a large technical staff and chaperones, administrative, gorgeous costumes, costume mistress, and more.
We have started fundraising efforts for this season. If you would like to donate or know companies that would like more information on sponsorship opportunities, please contact us. These opportunities include free tickets, program ads, and social media mentions. We are in need of donations for lighting, scenery, seamstress work/costumes, TBT professional dancer fees including the Prince and Drosselmeyer, and more.
Rehearsals: MANDATORY rehearsals are held during class times starting in August, along with MANDATORY FULL CAST PRACTICES which include the first three Saturdays in November at the CBT home studio. SK-1st and Level 1 will only attend one of these Saturdays. There are 2 MANDATORY stage rehearsals this year, and the show is December 10th.
Tickets go on sale in September. Ticket sales help support this amazing professional performance so please encourage family and friends to come see this beautiful production and make it a family holiday tradition! Your IG and FB posts of Nutcracker tickets sale announcements, costume fittings, rehearsals, and more help us make this event a success for our young performers!
