This year’s cast will be smaller in order to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions.  There will be 2 casts performing in 3 shows each, although some parts will be needed for all 6 shows.  Little Angels will be prerecorded and shown in conjunction with live action via the large screen.

If cast, the dancer contract below will be required along with a production fee of $150 per dancer.  If your dancer is cast as a Little Angel, you will not be required to pay the production fee.

For performances, the audience will be seated at tables in groups of 8. Tables will be priced at $320 and sold in this manner so you may select who is in your party.  Surprise treats will be at each place setting.

We plan to offer t-shirts, sweatshirts, professional photos, merchandise, flowers, and artwork as we normally do.
