Sunday, December 15 at 2pm and 7pm
Monday, December 16 at 8pm

Please note: Performers may need to leave school early for fittings and dress rehearsals.

Performance Fee:

The performance fee will be determined by each student’s number of performances, ranging from 1 to 3 shows. Students will be selected for the number of performances based on individual skills and the needs of the production. Quality of performance and cohesiveness of the group casting is a priority.

One show: $100 performance fee
Two shows: $150 performance fee
Three shows: $175 performance fee

We hope to cast as many students as possible who are ready to experience dancing with a professional company. The non-dancing role of the sleigh children will be cast at the audition along with the dancing roles.

Students selected for the sleigh role will only pay a $50 performance fee and will only be required to attend the final two Sunday rehearsals, along with the stage rehearsals.

Once your child’s performance cost is determined, an invoice will be sent via email. We ask you pay the invoice in full within two weeks of the day you receive it. In all cases, total performance cost must be paid in full no later than December 1, 2019 in order for your child to perform.
