Mississippi Gulf Coast Ballet Theatre holding auditions for The Nutcracker

While, Christmas isn’t necessarily right around the corner, the ballet auditions for this year’s Nutcracker show are.

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Ballet Theatre is looking for their future cast in the ballet. Auditions will take place this Saturday at their studio on D’Iberville Boulevard.

They’re looking for boys and girls ranging from the beginner through the advanced level.

Organizers see this as a great opportunity for young dancers to learn what auditions entail as well as perform alongside internationally known performers. Daniel Therrien with the Mississippi Gulf Coast Ballet Theatre said, “It gives them that feel, like you know, it’s Christmas time and it brings up the mood of people, especially in this day and of everything going on in the world. So, it gives them a good experience of what it is like to be on stage and to find their inner performer within themselves.”

The shows will be December 4th at 7 p.m. and December 5th at 3 p.m.
