VIRGINIA BEACH — For the sixth consecutive year, Richmond Ballet will return to Chrysler Hall in Norfolk with a beloved holiday tradition, “The Nutcracker,” Dec. 7-9.

Dance students from across Hampton Roads and North Carolina will be cast for student roles in “The Nutcracker;” last year’s production featured students from 33 local dance studios.

There will be auditions on Aug. 26 and Sept. 9 at Old Donation School, 4633 Honeygrove Road, as part of the Ballet’s new partnership with the state-of-the-art performing arts school, according to a news release from Richmond Ballet.

Students who are cast will participate in weekly rehearsals at Old Donation School on Sundays, Oct. 7 through Dec. 2.
