Nutcracker Rehearsal Schedule
Production Week:

Friday, December 19 - Full Dress Rehearsal - CHELSEA HIGH SCHOOL (it is best to shoot for 4pm to be there because of the
traffic; any later and you will be stuck and not get there until after 6pm)

Angels will rehearse with the Sugar Plum Fairy (maybe twice) and then they will be dismissed UNLESS THEY HAVE PARTS IN
ACT II.
Please prepare your young children for a later night than usual. We will try to get them finished as soon as possible! Remember,
one show is at night.
Angels will rehearse in costume and make up. Possibly Angels & those who are Polichinelles will leave early upon announcement.

Volunteers be prepared to be busy during dress rehearsal. We have assigned workers to be with each group of children and
dancers.
