RMDT is a local nonprofit performing arts organization that produces this annual performance that has become a cherished holiday tradition for so many in the surrounding area. Every year their production of The Nutcracker offers members of the community, regardless of dance instruction, an opportunity to participate in and contribute to a classical theatre experience. Open Auditions are held every spring and casting is announced during the summer. Weekly rehearsals begin in September where every role learns specific steps, formations, and staging choreographed to Tchaikovsky’s famous score.
Participating in the The Nutcracker provides experience and interaction with peers as well as professionals in dance and theatre, such as lighting and stage designers, and guest artists from prestigious dance companies across the country. The RMDT Nutcracker is the only performance in the area in which this type of exposure to the arts is afforded to our youth. The cast and crew work hard to ensure that The Nutcracker is of professional grade and entertaining for all to enjoy.
Dates for 2021 performances are Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 12, at 2 p.m. at the Wynona Thompson Auditorium in Cody. Tickets for this year’s production can be purchased online at rockymountaindancetheatre.org/nutcracker/, or at the Thistle and Cody Chamber in Cody, Wyoming.
