Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by the ghost of his late partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come. Faced with his own mortality and the evil results of his misanthropic, miserly ways, Scrooge is redeemed, reconciled with his nephew and his neighbors, and becomes a second father to his assistant’s son, Tiny Tim.
WHAT WILL AUDITIONS BE LIKE?
You will sign in and fill out an audition form to tell us about yourself. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before — experience isn’t required. A script will be given to you at the auditions. You will be asked to sing and read from the script, along with others who are auditioning. You do not need to attend both audition nights. Children ages 8-16 will audition first at 6 p.m. Auditions for actors age 17 and above will begin at approximately 7 p.m.
WHAT ROLES ARE AVAILABLE?
There are many roles available for children and adults of various ages. Children must be at least age 8 to audition.
WHEN ARE REHEARSALS?
Not long after auditions, rehearsals will be scheduled weeknights, with some weekend involvement closer to the performance dates, which are Dec. 7, 8, 9, 10(M), 13, 14, 15 & 16.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
ACT is a nonprofit, volunteer organization providing quality theatre and entertainment for our community. If you’re not interested in being on stage, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in other ways, such as backstage crew, building and painting sets, costumes, props, lights, sound, usher or in the box office. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information about auditions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
