Snowflake Lane auditions

Snowflake Lane 2021: How to audition for the Bellevue holiday spectacular

Tryouts are Sept. 18-19 and 25-26. Shows begin Nov. 26 in Bellevue.

Update, Sept. 14, Snowflake Lane auditions:

Most of us are focused on back to school, football and getting ready for the first big fall storm. However, at least one local organization is starting to plan for Christmas.

Yes, you read that right.

The producers of Snowflake Lane, the holiday spectacle that lights up downtown Bellevue each night, will be holding auditions in September to fill dozens of positions. And some of them are open to teen performers.

This year’s show will have 29 performances Nov. 26 through Dec. 24, 2021. The time commitment is 5:30-8:30 p.m., and pay is $35 per performance. (That’s a net of just over $1,000, the producers point out!)
