WE ARE LOOKING FOR ACTORS OF ALL AGES – FROM YOUNGER CHILDREN (age 6-ish) AND TEENS TO ANY AGE ADULTS. All roles are open (and unpaid) and EVERYONE is welcomed to audition.
NOT A SINGER? There are a substantial parts that can be played by non-singers, so don’t let that stop you from being a part of what promises to be a fun show and a great experience.
There are great parts available for every age group, and plenty of supporting roles for people with limited experience on stage.
Scrooge is the Leslie Bricusse musical adaptation of the classic A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and features a large cast of delightful characters, including Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Jacob Marley, ghosts and phantoms, and all the residents of Cheapside. Due to the large cast size, most actors (except those cast in a few principal roles) will play multiple roles. Everyone will stay busy in this production!
INFORMATION FOR AUDITIONERS:
Auditions will consist of a vocal audition, cold readings from the script, and a simple/basic dance/movement routine. (Don’t panic – it’s not a “dance show” but there are some dance/movement numbers). Please prepare a song (musical theatre preferred, but not from the show) that best showcases your voice. Piano accompaniment will be available, as well as a CD player. Younger children will receive special assistance if needed.
AUDITIONERS ARE ADVISED TO ARRIVE EARLY, SO THAT WE CAN ASSIGN SIDES FOR COLD READINGS AFTER YOU SING. Be prepared to list any conflicts you have with rehearsals being held from 9/15 through 12/1(including day and evening times for Saturdays and Sundays).
