BRB Nutcracker open auditions for young dancers

Vera Liber

Birmingham Royal Ballet is on the hunt for young boys and girls for its new production of The Nutcracker created especially for the Royal Albert Hall featuring state-of-the-art technology, projections and 75kg of artificial snow, running from 28 to 31 December 2017.

Open auditions will be held on Sunday 1 October at the Urdang Academy in London for sixteen children (eight boys and eight girls) in school years 5, 6 or 7 (from September 2017). Previous ballet experience is an advantage, but not necessary. Auditions will include a dance and acting workshop delivered by a senior member of Birmingham Royal Ballet.

Times will be confirmed nearer the audition day, once applications have been received. Bookings can be made online for a fee of £26.99, including a £1.99 booking fee.
