Information for MUTTcracker Exhibitors-Vendors 2015
Audition for dogs who wish to appear in The Nutcracker ballet. We need dogs that walk nicely on a leash and a small dog which can be held, passed around and walk on a leash. Dogs must be child and dog friendly, comfortable with loud noises, bright lights, tight quarters, being bumped and the excited energy of 20-40 children at once. Dogs auditioning must have been adopted from a rescue or shelter and have been spayed or neutered before the audition.
