Nutcracker 2016 is officially in the books! Two performances (Saturday evening and Sunday matinee), two school performances (Friday morning at 930 and another at 1130), four nights of rehearsals on the big stage and two months of studio rehearsals. . .
The shows went really well. Our Party Scene was great and I really enjoyed being back on stage! My costume was yooooge, as you can see from the pictures! After our first full dress rehearsal I realized that I either needed to wear character shoes (I was wearing low, lace up jazz oxfords), or needed a bustle. Since my dance partner is only a couple inches taller than I am we decided I needed to hit up the costume ladies for a bustle. It helped a lot!
