Nutcracker ballet casting and closing Faerie portals

Two questions of utterly diverging subjects.

1) How likely is it that a (highly talented, aspiring to go pro) 15/16-year-old would be cast as the Sugar Plum Fairy in a production of the Nutcracker? The company is a medium-sized school company. If it's highly unlikely, what parts would she be more likely to get?

2) Regarding "portals" to the land of Faerie- the places like fairy rings and similar areas where a mortal could enter into the otherworld: Is there any folklore prescription on how to close or block them so nobody from either end can go through?
