Westchester Ballet Company’s major production, The Nutcracker, features a cast of more than 125 dancers and guest artists, with exquisite choreography, and lavish costumes, scenery and special effects. Four performances of The Nutcracker are presented each December at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, New York.  Westchester Ballet Company presents this wonderful and affordable dance experience to diverse and enthusiastic audiences of over 7,000 annually, including special School Performances.

Casting for The Nutcracker is determined by an open audition held every year in September.  Rehearsals commence immediately thereafter and run throughout the twelve weeks prior to the opening day.
