2016 Nutcracker Auditions

Ready for your dancing dreams to come to life? The Nutcracker, celebrating 32 years this season, is one of the longest-running and most prestigious performing arts events in Lincoln, and we’d love for you to be a part of the magic!

Our exciting 2016-17 season includes: The Nutcracker at the Lied Center in Lincoln December 17 and 18, 2016; The Nutcracker on tour in Central City, Nebraska, November 27, 2016; and Snow White at North Star High School March 24 and 25, 2017.

Please check the Nutcracker Rehearsal Schedule,information about the Central City tour and spring show, and your personal commitments before you audition to avoid conflicts that would keep you from fulfilling your responsibilities in LMBC productions.

Auditions will provide opportunities for performers to be accepted into our 2016 production of The Nutcracker, 2017 Spring Ballet Snow White and the 2017 LMBC Summer Intensive. Select cast members of The Nutcracker will also participate in The Nutcracker on Tour in Central City.

Auditions will take place Saturday, September 24, 2016, inside Mabel Lee Hall, 850 North 14th (14th and Vine) on the UNL City Campus. A one-time audition fee of $25 is payable when you register online. Please note that your PayPal receipt will serve as confirmation that your online registration has been completed. Online registration will end Tuesday, September 20 at 5:00 p.m. The audition fee then increases to $35 and can be paid in-person at auditions on September 24.

There is a $45 participation fee for each performer cast in the Nutcracker. Financial assistance is available, if needed, via the Steinegger Family Scholarship Fund. Call the Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company artistic phone line (402-441-0739) for more information or if you have any questions. Please leave a clear message as we would be happy to help you.
