Please note that only a limited number of roles are available and attendance at all rehearsals, put-togethers, and dress rehearsals is mandatory. Children may be assigned to one of two casts (Cast A/Cast B) and will perform according to that group’s particular theater schedule in coordination with the professional company’s casting; because of this some children may perform in 1-2 more shows than others.

If selected there will be a performance fee of $195 to participate. This will be charged immediately upon acceptance of the role.

Please note the following roles that Charlottesville Ballet is auditioning for:


*Please note that the Angels will only perform at PVCC in Charlottesville and not in Waynesboro or Lynchburg

**Please note that there will be an additional Lynchburg-specific cast for Sheep and Chinese
