Nutcracker Musical

2019 Nutcracker Cast & Parent Information

Participation in The Nutcracker Musical, open to LW students in grades 3, 4 and 5, is a privilege and requires a significant commitment on the part of the children AND their parents.

Auditions and Rehearsals cannot be missed except for illness.


(Updated 9-23-19)

We want to thank all of the students who came to Nutcracker Auditions.  We enjoyed your enthusiasm and willingness to try out regardless of the outcome!  On September 23rd we sent out Nutcracker letters to the students who have been cast in the show.   


There is a Commitment Form that is required to be completed and returned in order to participate in the Nutcracker. This form was attached to the casting letter. Please complete and return the Nutcracker Commitment Form, along with a $5 suggested donation per child (cash or check to "Laurelwood Elementary").  

IMPORTANT: This is due by Friday, September 27, 2019. If we do not receive the signed Commitment Form, your child's part will be re-cast.

The current Rehearsal Schedule is posted below and is also available as a downloadable file from the LEFT side of this page in the "Nutcracker Files" section.  

This year's Costume Requirements are also posted as a downloadable file from the LEFT side of this page in the "Nutcracker Files" section.
