<p>Nutcracker Children by Roy Smiljanic</p>.

We're looking for 16 talented girls and boys to appear in our enchanting new production of The Nutcracker, which is being performed for the first-time ever at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall from 28 to 31 December 2017. This brand-new version of the classic story has been created especially for the Royal Albert Hall. Featuring world-class dancing and music, state-of-the-art technology, ground-breaking projections and topped off with a dusting of artificial snow, this truly is a unique opportunity for children who love to perform to take to one of the world's most famous stages as part of our much-loved and magical winter wonderland.

We will be holding open auditions on Sundays 1 & 8 October at Urdang Academy in London where we will be looking for 16 children (eight boys and eight girls) to cast in this new production of The Nutcracker. There will be two teams of children, each performing in up to four performances.


In order to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, children must be in school years 5, 6 or 7 (from September 2017). The maximum height for participants is 142cm and ideally, we're looking for boys and girls who enjoy dancing, have good musicality and love to perform. Previous ballet experience is an advantage, but not necessary.


The open auditions for The Nutcracker will include a dance and acting workshop delivered by a senior member of Birmingham Royal Ballet, as well as the chance to learn some of the steps performed in the ballet. Click each date for more information on the audition and to apply.
