Registration for the 2023 Nutcracker will open on August 21st. 

Ready for your dancing dreams to come to life? The Nutcracker, celebrating 39 years this season, is one of the longest-running and most prestigious performing arts events in Lincoln, and we’d love for you to be a part of the magic!  

Rehearsals will be held most weekends starting Saturday, October 28th through Sunday, December 10th. Your rehearsal schedule and responsibilities will be determined by the role(s) you receive. These rehearsals will take place at 5445 Red Rock Ln, STE 200, Lincoln, NE 68516. 

Please check the 2023 Rehearsal and Costume Fitting Schedule, and your personal commitments before you audition to avoid conflicts that would keep you from fulfilling your responsibilities in LMBC activities.

If you decline any Nutcracker role/s cast by LMBC judges, you will not be eligible to audition the following year for any LMBC production(s).

Auditions will provide opportunities for performers to be accepted into our 2023 production of The Nutcracker. Auditions will take place in September at 5445 Red Rock Ln, STE 200, Lincoln, NE 68516.  A one-time NON-REFUNDABLE audition fee of $25 is payable when you register online. 

Advance online registration is required. Registrations will close at 11:30 pm on Friday, September 15, 2023. Be sure to register before then as additional registrations at the audition site will not be accepted! YOU MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED.
