Audition Notice: Children Wanted for Birmingham Royal Ballet Nutcracker Performance

16 September 2019

An opportunity for young dancers to perform on a world-famous stage this Winter.

By popular demand, Birmingham Royal Ballet's production of The Nutcracker returns to the prestigious Royal Albert Hall this Christmas.

The Birmingham Royal Ballet is now looking for more young dancers to work with.

Running throughout December 2019, The Nutcracker truly is a unique opportunity for children who love to perform to take to one of the world's most famous stages. They too can be part of the much-loved and magical winter wonderland production, which features world-class dancing and music, state-of-the-art technology, ground-breaking projections and is topped off with a dusting of artificial snow.

BRB will be holding open auditions on Sundays 6th & 13th October at Birmingham Royal Ballet's studios. They will be looking for 16 children (eight boys and eight girls). There will be two teams of children, each performing in up to four performances.

In order to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, children must be in school Years 5, 6 or 7 (from September 2019). The maximum height for participants is 142cm and, ideally, they're looking for boys and girls who enjoy dancing, have good musicality and love to perform. Previous ballet experience is an advantage, but not necessary.

The open auditions for The Nutcracker will include a dance and acting workshop delivered by a senior member of Birmingham Royal Ballet, as well as the chance to learn some of the steps performed in the ballet. Click the link below for more information on the audition and to apply.

Audition dates: Sunday 6th October and Sunday 13th October

Venue: Birmingham Royal Ballet, Thorp Street, Birmingham B5 4AU

Audition slots will be confirmed before the audition day, once applications and completed personal details forms have been received.
