Nutcracker Musical

2018 Nutcracker Cast & Parent Information

Participation in The Nutcracker Musical is a privilege and requires a significant commitment on the part of the children AND parents.

Auditions and Rehearsals cannot be missed except for illness.


We want to thank all the students who came to the Nutcracker Auditions.  We enjoyed your enthusiasm and willingness to try out regardless of the outcome!  Today (9/24) we sent out the Nutcracker letters to the students who we have cast in the show.   

The commitment forms are required for participating in the Nutcracker.  Please complete and return the Nutcracker Commitment form, along with a $5 suggested donation per child (cash or check to "Laurelwood Elementary").  This is due by Friday, September 28, 2018. If we do not receive the signed form, your child's part will be re-cast.
