The Nutcracker – Auditions

Below is the 2018 Nutcracker Audition Registration Form.


Look for more information coming this summer for our 2018 Nutcracker Auditions!

Auditions for our annual performance of The Nutcracker are held each year in either late August or early September.

Auditions are open to all St. Tammany residents ages 7-up. No experience required, but certain roles do require specific skills. Dancers ages 11 and up are to audition for BALLET APETREI (held separately in September – these dancers do NOT attend the “open to the public” Nutcracker cast auditions). Those selected as Company Dancers will then be assigned Nutcracker roles by the Artistic Director, Kelly Fortier Apetrei.

Please understand and appreciate the honor and responsibility which comes along with being cast in The Nutcracker. It’s a short rehearsal season (10-11 weeks) and your attendance at all rehearsals is mandatory!! Please discuss any possible conflicts with Kelly Fortier Apetrei BEFORE auditioning and making this commitment!
