Current Opportunities

Nutcracker Experience - Characters and Wranglers
December 1st through the 23th, 2011
Various dates and times

Dress up as The Nutcracker, The Mouse King or Maria and delight children of all ages. Wear the "Pocket Lady" Dress, and pass out toys to adoring children. Or help out by being a "Wrangler", a helper who keeps an eye out for the costumed characters and who volunteers to take pictures with people’s cameras so the whole family can be in the frame.

Positions will be before every performance of The Nutcracker and at local San Jose events and parades during the holiday season. Volunteers wishing to be characters must come to the ballet office for a costume fitting prior to the event.
