PNB Nutcracker tryouts begin

While waiting for their turn to audition for the Nutcracker, a few boys spent part of the time making faces as they stared into a mirror. Kids at center, left to right, are: Sebastian Fanucchi, 10, of West Seattle; William Dougherty, 9, of Kent (#70) and Logan Dopps, 9, from Lake Forest Park. Ballet dancers, ages 8 - 10, auditioned for one of the much-coveted roles in Pacific Northwest Ballet's production of the Nutcracker at the Phelps Center at Seattle Center Sunday, Sept. 18, 2011. 300 kids in three age groups competed for one of the 200 spots available.
