Nutcracker 2016 Rehearsal Schedule

Nutcracker 2016 Production Week Master Schedule  (as of 12/4, subject to change)

Below is information pertaining to the cast, technical staff and volunteers. It is easier to maintain one schedule and allows us all to see and learn (and appreciate!) what others are doing behind the scenes. We suggest you print and highlight those times that pertain to you.  We will make every effort to stay on schedule but we appreciate your patience and understanding if things take a bit longer than expected.  Looking forward to a fun and exciting couple of weeks!
