Sept. 12 Auditions for THE NUTCRACKER

The Middlebury Community Players announce that MCP Foundations will stage the children’s theatre production of The Nutcracker’s Adventure at Middlebury Union High School’s auditorium in December. Featuring Tchaikovsky’s well-known holiday music, this play will be a fun musical dramatic portrayal of the story.

The cast calls for children ages 8-17, as well as two men and two women between 30 and 70 years old. Performers should come prepared to sing, dance and read from a script. Music will be provided. Accommodations will be made for beginning readers! No preparation needed.

Auditions will be held Saturday, September 12, at 10:00 a.m., Mary Hogan School, 201 Mary Hogan Drive, Middlebury 05753. Register by 10:15 a.m.

NOTE: Children must be 8 years old by October 1 in order to audition.

Directed by Sarah Stone, choreography by Nancy Wollum. Rehearsals will begin the week following auditions. Performances will be at the Middlebury Union High School auditorium during “Merry Middlebury Weekend” Friday-Sunday, December 4-6, 2015.

The goal of MCP Foundations is to give lots of children and their families an introductory theater experience in performance, stagecraft, backstage and technical skills. This is an opportunity to be on stage or back stage without previous experience!

More information will be posted soon. Questions? Contact Sarah Stone at
