Canada’s Ballet Jorgen has a busy schedule planned for Ottawa this season and that includes a family holiday favorite at Shenkman Art Centre on December 12th and 13th for three shows and then for two shows on December 15th at Meridian Centrepointe.
The show in question is The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition which has become a holiday favorite for Ottawa and area families.
Too soon to talk about this holiday tradition you think, well not so when it comes to this other long standing tradition of local participants trying out for roles in the production.
Nutcracker local participant auditions take place at Shenkman Arts Centre at 245 Centrum Blvd on Saturday from 1 to 5pm with rehearsals beginning the next day.
To date, local dancers from over 25 schools have registered. Auditions registration is open til tomorrow at 5pm.
