Curtains Up Pagosa (CUP) will be holding auditions for its winter show, “Nutcracker the Musical,” on Sept. 6 and 7 at Pagosa Springs High School.
This production will be the first ever collaboration between CUP and the local dance academy run by Casey Crow. We are excited to bring the Nutcracker to our community, Pagosa style.
Auditions for dance academy students only will be held Thursday, Sept. 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. with an age breakdown as follows: 4 to 5 p.m. for ages 7-10, 5 to 6 p.m. for ages 11-13, and 6 to 7 p.m. for ages 14 and up.
Regular auditions for performers age 7 and up will be held on Friday, Sept. 7, from 2 to 7 p.m. We are seeking all actors between the ages of 7 and 90 for this musical.
For Friday auditions, please prepare one verse of a Broadway tune of your choosing and bring sheet music; an accompanist is provided. Script readings and a group dance will be part of the audition. We are looking forward to your audition.
Contact CUP’s director, Dale Johnson, at 946-1500 or Crow at the dance academy for further information.
