The Classic Nutcracker Cast List 2016

Thank you to everyone who came out and auditioned for this seasons production of The Classic Nutcracker. We love seeing the progression of the dancers who audition year after year and we are thrilled to see new faces!

The FMBallet is a non-profit dance company that has open auditions twice a season (The Classic Nutcracker and our spring production); so all dancers and movers over the age of 6 in the Fargo-Moorhead and surrounding areas are welcome to audition.

Now, what you have been waiting for, the cast list for our 2016 holiday production The Classic Nutcracker. Be sure to check the WHOLE list in case you are casted in multiple roles. The rehearsal schedule and first cast/parent meeting date will be posted shortly (on our website, emailed to you, and at Gasper's School of Dance).
