Q: Who gets the 1/2 price deal in my scout or church group? A: All of you: The troop leaders, parents helping out, even extra family members that attend with your group.
Q: Scout patches? A: Yes! They are $1 each. Let us know how many you'll need, and we will send them to you after the production. We don't give them out at the theater.
Q: Can we take pictures during the performance? A: No, sorry. No photography or videotaping inside the theater.
Q: Can we meet the dancers? A: Yes, the Corps de ballet members of the SB will come into the lobby right after each performance. You can meet & get photos with them. (For the safety of the rest of cast, only the corps members are allowed to do this.)
Q: How do I get to see the dancers after performances? A: The audience will be cleared, then the rest of the cast will be ready to see & pick up after they have changed into street clothing.
Q: Can I go backstage? A: No. For security and safety of our cast & crew, only authorized persons are allowed on stage, backstage or dressing areas.
Q: How many years has the Sunrise Ballet done the Nutcracker? A: 2018 is our 30th year.
Q: Is the show the same as last year? A: NO! The Sunrise Ballet Nutcracker is re-choreographed and re-staged each year. This makes it fresh and new for the cast & audience.
Q: Is this a dance studio "recital"? A: NO! The Sunrise Ballet is a performing ballet company, not a dance studio. There's a big difference.
Q: Do you hire professional dancers to do the lead roles? A: NO! We have enough talented local dancers right here. Besides, why take those parts away from dancers who have worked very long and very hard- and deserve them?
