The Nutcracker: PARTICIPANTS' PAGE

We've had 10 Nutcracker Seasons, and have learned some things along the way... it's hard to put a show together if people don't follow instructions, know where/when to be present, or chip in to assist...

In attempts to help you keep organized and informed (and therefore in turn help us keep things running as they should!), we would like to highlight these main methods to get information, mark dates on your calendar, and to be prepared, on time, and ready for all rehearsals.

• Email: CHECK IT OFTEN AND READ THEM THOROUGHLY!

We send all-cast emails through our GoDaddy email marketing campaigns, so they may be marked as "Promotions" and automatically filtered to a separate folder, without your knowledge!


• Jackrabbit (online database, registration form): If you have yet to register on Jackrabbit, you cannot be in the show. This is easy to complete; we need your dancer's and family's contact info.
Register with this form.We will be sending emails to specific groups regarding rehearsals, and if you're not in the program's database, you won't be notified. This is also for billing purposes, to keep track of cast fees and payments received, etc. Bookmark the portal to access your family's account and view vital info, receive communication, and view your billing/account details.


 Nutcracker Info Center at studio: bulletin board, table with Nutcracker business: order forms, scheduling, sweatshirt cast-name approval (check spelling), volunteer info, and more!


• Website: You're here! As you can see, this page has news, rehearsal scheduling for upcoming weekends, and links to all the info you need access to during the season!


Facebook: We have a special page just for the SBDA Nutcracker!

See photos, scheduling updates, attend / invite friends/family to the performance event, and more!

• Text Reminders via
Remind App: if you already have the app, please make sure you're actively receiving notifications. If you don't have the app, the messages will arrive to your phone via text message. These messages are sent the day before rehearsals every weekend by our Volunteer Coordinator, Kimberly Royston. If you have any questions, please (re-)read all previous communication, then direct your question to her. She is a veteran Nutcracker Mom! (... she's been with us since Season 1, in 2008!) She will direct you accordingly.

If you experience issues with any of these forms of communication, please inform us immediately by emailing:
