Auditions for Seaside Nutcracker in August

Published: Thursday, June 19, 2014 at 11:33 AM.

Seaside will host auditions for the Third Annual Seaside Nutcracker from 5-6 p.m. Aug. 22 at the Seaside Assembly Hall, 168 Smolian Circle in Santa Rosa Beach. Dancers ages 8 to 18 from the Northwest Florida regions are eligible to participate in auditions.

 The Nutcracker will be directed and choreographed by Rose Barile, an honor graduate of Juilliard School and former prima ballerina with the Atlanta Ballet. The one-time performance of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker in Seaside is scheduled for Nov. 22 and will feature Act II. The performance will be free and open to the public.

Barile recently celebrated more than 30 years as director of Alpharetta Dance Theatre and her company has performed the Nutcracker in North Atlanta for 18 years.

“We are excited about creating an opportunity for dance students to develop qualities of strength, discipline and leadership in their school and communities,” said Barile.

An audition fee and pre-registration is required. For more details and registration, please direct your inquiries to
