Rehearsal Schedule

The performances for Nutcracker 2022 are scheduled for  December 10th and Dec 11th at Cheney Hall in Manchester CT.   Dress Rehearsal will be the evening of Dec 9th. And a run-through/Blocking Rehearsal will be at Cheney Hall on December 4th.
Children should bring water and a  healthy snack to rehearsal on days when they will be at rehearsal for a while. It would also be prudent to bring somthing quiet to do during waits between rehearsal times (homework, a book, coloring etc.  If bringing electronic games, please bring headphones or set to mute.)

Please try not to miss rehearsals as it makes it difficult for everyone to learn their dances when people are missing. Please email me the day before at [email protected] or message me on Band if you will be absent for any reason or if you have any questions.

IMPORTANT: Please join our band app to receive important Nutcracker updates.
