It's chilly and wet outside and inside a Loop dance studio Sunday there was another reminder of seasonal change.

Hundreds of young dancers are auditioning for roles in the Joffrey Ballet's annual presentation of the "Nutcracker."

The holiday classic will be staged in December at the Auditorium Theater. More than 100 dancers will be selected to be part of the production, which begins rehearsal next month.
