*Auditions have passed, but don't miss the show! See our second annual Nutcracker Redux at the Wendy Williamson auditorium, December 20 & 21.

Pulse Dance Company is holding auditions for their contemporary rendition of The Nutcracker. Auditions are open to all Anchorage dancers/performers ages 8+. Positions available include party girls and boys, party parents, snowflakes and flowers, and some demi and soloist roles.

Pulse’s Nutcracker Redux is an adventurous departure from the story’s traditional victorian setting and plunges audiences into a sugar-coated, edgy world of colorful characters and hilarious spectacle.


A new opportunity for local youth and adult performers to be featured in an all-Alaskan production that simultaneously celebrates yet diverges from tradition.

Ages 8-11: 5:00-5:30pm
