Nutcracker Rehearsals and Performance Information 2014

Wednesday, December 17th – Sunday, December 21st    

 

Our Spacing, Technical and Dress Rehearsals will be held Thursday, December and Friday, December t at the Campbell Heritage Theatre from 4:30 PM – 10:30 PM; call time for all performers and backstage helpers is 4:00 PM.  We will not be equipped for young performers to arrive before 3:30 PM.  Please plan on long nights, it is important for the performers (and the backstage helpers) to feel comfortable with the stage, costume changes and scene changes.

All performers should arrive in warm-ups and dance clothing.  Costumes will be at the theater.   Hair should be done for both rehearsal days (party scene hair styles for those in party scene or all girls in classical ballet buns, hair slicked neatly into a round bun at the crown of the head, no bangs, all boys hair neatly combed and out of face.  Make-up must be worn for Dress Rehearsal.  It is very important that make-up and hair be done prior to the start of Dress Rehearsal.  Any make-up and/or hair notes will be given at the end of rehearsal so corrections can be made for the performances. 

Please bring snacks, drinks and water to consume during breaks.  Also plan to bring something for dinner.  Food can only be consumed in cement backstage area or outdoors.  Students must not eat or drink anything except water when in costume.  It is a good idea to bring a towel or blanket to sit on and warm clothes if eating outdoors.  On rehearsal days it is important to note that anyone associated with South Bay Dance Center is not allowed to loiter in the lobby area immediately outside the theater.  Please be respectful of the theater rules, breaking these rules could result in the loss of our deposit.  Parents not working backstage are welcome to watch quietly from the house, please no young siblings.  If the audience becomes disruptive during rehearsals, we may need to clear the theater.  There will be time when performers are waiting backstage, parents of young dancers may wish to bring coloring books or projects (no ink markers in costume); older dancers may wish to bring homework.

 

Please note that only our start time is definite.  We will try to end on time (or earlier), but will allow as much time as needed for the dancers to feel comfortable on the stage.
