Performance and Rehearsal Information
At this time, the Nutcracker is planned for Friday-Sunday, December 11-13, 2020 at The Lincoln Center, with rehearsals and tech being the week following up to that weekend. The rehearsal on Thursday, December 10 may be attended again this year as a sponsor night. We are not planning on the condensed matinees this year. Please know we may need to be flexible with The Lincoln Center, but at this time we do have these dates!
We are working closely with the Larimer County Health Department to make sure our rehearsals and performances are as safe as possible. We are waiting on final approval at this time, but once we have finalized information for our approved rehearsal plan, we will share it right away. The audition process will be following our current class protocols, linked here.
