The Nutcracker Costume Information

Please have required items
below by the dress rehearsals Thanksgiving Weekend, 11/25-26.
All female dancers will need a "nudie" to wear underneath their costumes.
A "nudie" is a camisole-style, neutral/flesh colored leotard.

The "nudie" provides two things:
It allows dancers to get dressed in a group setting; and it helps protect our
costumes for future use.
