Emelin Theatre to premiere Nutcracker Dream – Call for September Auditions

The Emelin Theatre comes together with renowned choreographer Carole Alexis to present America’s favorite seasonal ballet with the professional dance company Ballet des Amériques. Alexis’ Nutcracker Dream is inspired by the work of Marius Petipa and Rudolf Nureyev and will be presented as a one-hour family friendly adaptation of the classic ballet. Nutcracker Dreamwill receive its world premiere with performances on Sunday December 16, 2018 and Saturday December 22, 2018 at the Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck NY. Professional dancers from Ballet des Amériques will perform the featured roles of the ballet.

Additional roles will be cast by auditions at the Emelin on Friday September 21 from 5-8pm and Saturday September 22 from 10am-1:30pm. Boys and girls aged 10-17, who have at least 3 years of ballet training, are invited to audition. Candidates should have intermediate to advanced ballet technique, clean lines and the ability to take corrections and directions quickly. To pre-register for the audition, please call (646) 753-0457 or write to [email protected] with “Nutcracker Dream Audition” in the subject line.

With this collaboration, the Emelin Theatre is thrilled to present a professional adaptation of this beloved ballet for the enjoyment of family audiences throughout Westchester. As Emelin’s Executive Director, Elliot Fox, explains, “We have been looking to present the Nutcracker in collaboration with Westchester based artists.  We are excited to find this collaboration with Carole Alexis and Ballet des Amériques, whose quality, cultural knowledge and artistic vision brings world-class art to our family series and holiday season programming.” Carole Alexis, for her part, explains that her interest in creating a Nutcrackerwas to bring families and friends together around the essence of what the story represents, namely, the beautiful balance between Marie’s childhood playfulness and her coming of age in the midst of her own circle of family and friends – an objective that dovetails nicely the Emelin’s program.

Under the directorship of French-American choreographer Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques, has been staging productions at the Emelin Theatre since 2012. Proclaimed Westchester’s Premier Dance Company by the County Executive, Ballet des Amériques is also resident company of the Tarrytown Music Hall and is committed to developing inclusive dance audiences regionally, nationally and internationally. The Emelin Theatre for the Performing Arts has been bringing exciting and diverse performing arts to Westchester for over 45 years, offering a broad spectrum of entertainment appealing to all ages and tastes, attracting audiences from Westchester County and beyond. The Emelin presents world music of all genres, dance, comedy, and independent film in addition to its family programs.
