We have made tremendous progress towards putting on the best Nutcracker production Vero Beach has ever seen! Everyone has been working hard and the efforts are paying off.
Please note some changes in the rehearsal schedule this week. With November now upon us, we are in the final stretch and are close to doing full Act I and Act II run-throughs. With this in mind, I have begun combining parts of sections such as Waltz of the Flowers into full cast rehearsals. This is extremely important but less convenient for some of the young dancers. However, the good news is that we are close to what we have all been working towards: performing a fantastic Nutcracker production.
Also, for all those that are planning on helping with the Nutcracker we are having a meeting from 6 to 6:30pm this Saturday after rehearsal. I know that it is a long day, but if you can stay at or return to the studio it will be a great help to the production. Thank you!
Please review this weekend’s rehearsal schedule carefully.
