Carolina Ballet auditions local children each year for various roles in our production of The Nutcracker. Be a part of Carolina Ballet’s iconic ballet, The Nutcracker, featuring a live symphony orchestra, grand magical illusions, and magnificent sets & costumes.

The Children’s Cast is an important part of The Nutcracker each year. All Children’s Cast members are expected to commit to attending all scheduled rehearsals and performances. We also expect our Children’s Cast members to act respectfully and professionally when they share the studio and stage with our professional dancers.
