Nutcracker 2023 Performers Information

August 27, 2023

Find all the Nutcracker 2023 performers information needed to navigate our production, for students, parents and volunteers.

As additional information is available, it will be posted here.

Performance Cast List

The performance cast list indicates who performs each role in which performance, when there is more than one performance.  Some students will perform their role in each performance, while others will share a role, performing only in one of the performances.

Rehearsal Schedule

The rehearsal schedule lists the date, location and time for each rehearsal for every role from the start of rehearsals until the performances.

We understand that some families will be attending ceremonies on Sep 30 and Nov 11.  Due to the few Saturdays available, rehearsals will still run on those dates for students who can come.

  • Students are enrolled in their rehearsals in our online system, so rehearsal schedules for each student can be viewed in your family online account under their Classes.
  • Email reminders for each rehearsal time are sent to families the day before so that everyone has plenty of notice.
  • Please be sure that the email address on your account is up-to-date so that you don’t miss out on your email reminders!

Cast List

The cast list informs students which role they will be performing in and therefore which rehearsals they will need to attend.  It is important for parents and students to read through the full cast list carefully for a student’s name as they are often in more than one role.

Production Handbook

The Production Handbook provides all of the behind-the-scenes information to navigate your way through production week, including links to the performance casts, rehearsal and performance schedules, maps to the theatre, and hair & make-up requirements.
