Call for local students to perform in “Romeo & Juliet” by Ballet Jorgen

Ballet Jorgen Canada is looking for six to 10 student dancers and two theatre students to participate with the company in their performance of Romeo & Juliet.

The cast will be assembled from Cranbrook-area students, based on either a recommendation by their dance/theatre teachers OR at an audition.

The cast will rehearse with the company for 1.5 hours the day before the show OR right after the audition in addition to two or three hours prior to the performance. The candidates need to learn the choreography quickly, listen well, follow directions and retain them easily. They must have good stage presence and carry themselves well — there are few ‘formal’ dance steps.

Roles will include: Villager children and teenagers, ballroom guests and servants and guards.

Eligibility Criteria

(The boys must be willing to wear tights)

Villager teenagers and ballroom servants — two to four roles.

14 years old and up, and young adult-like.

The two to four Guard roles are to be filled by theatre students.

11 -13 years old.

Male or female.

Height: 4 feet 11 inches – 5 feet 3 inches; Waist: 23 inches – 26 inches;  Chest: 27 inches – 31 inches.

To recommend your students or register to audition to gain a role and perform in your local performance of Romeo & Juliet visit and submit the application form. You will need the student’s name, DOB, phone, email, guardian name and email, height, waist and chest measurements. For recommendations you will need a username and password, contact Clea Iveson for this.

Ballet Jorgen Canada’s Education Manager will select the cast members based from all the recommendations received and then contact the teachers with the casting results. For the audition process the cast will be chosen on the day of the audition.

The deadline to submit recommendations for the February 11, 2014 performance of Romeo & Juliet in Cranbrook is Monday January 27, 2014
