We are proud to partner with Fisher Ballet Productions, to produce an annual full length community Nutcracker.
The Nutcracker is a full-length ballet performance for the whole community that gives dance students the opportunity to experience performing in a real ballet.
All students, ages 4 and up from TDE are invited to audition for the production.
If you are interested in being in the Nutcracker please contact Liane Fisher between September and October. Students will be invited to a casting audition to determine role(s) in the show.
Rehearsals generally take place on Sunday afternoon in Bristol. Performances are at Cheney Hall in Manchester in mid December. Tech & Dress Rehearsals will take place at Cheney Hall during the week before the performance and are mandatory.
Rehearsal Schedule can be found here.
All costumes are provided. Students need only supply make-up, leotards, tights/leggings and shoes.
Participation in the Nutcracker is on a sliding scale. If you can afford to contribute to the costs of participation, $145 is suggested per dancer, to help defray the massive costs of a production this size. However, every family’s situation is different, so please pay only what you can and if you cannot pay anything, you are still welcome to dance in the show! You can also help by joining our fundraising team on Flip Give (code: GTJQRK).
Being in the Nutcracker teaches students about part of the Classical Ballet Repertoire, about team work, about performance, about the art of ballet, and about perseverance. Many of our students have reported an increased interest in learning ballet after participating in the Nutcracker and all loved being in the show!
