Alice is, once again, going to be performing in the PVB‘s winter production of The Nutcracker. In previous years, she has been a reindeer (twice) and a gingerbread cookie (twice). This year, the production has added some new roles and Alice will be a Holly Tree.
She was, honestly, a little disappointed. I think she wanted to be a Candy Cane. It took some reminders that the ballet casts her role and she agreed to accept whatever part she was assigned, and now she warmed to it.
I had been thinking about auditioning for the ballet too. There are a number of adult roles that require nearly no skill and they have foolishly agreed to let me perform.
I am a PARTY ADULT.
And why not.
