A Christmas Story, The Musical
Oct. 4 & 5
Marion Ross Performing Arts Center
147 N. Broadway, Albert Lea
Anyone age 12 and over must be vaccinated for COVID-19 in order to audition. You must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination status when signing in to audition. This is to ensure the health and safety of the cast and crew, and to prevent, as best we can, any COVID cases in the cast that would force us to cancel the show.
This musical is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on TV every Christmas. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Homan, Indiana, the show follows 9-year-old Ralphie and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts — an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle.
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 auditions. You can also request a perusal script before auditions at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be asked to read from the script, sing and possibly learn a few dance steps, along with others who are auditioning. You do not need to attend both audition nights.
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?
Beginning in October, rehearsals will be scheduled weeknights, with some weekend involvement closer to the performance dates, which are Dec. 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12(matinee).
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
ACT is a non-profit, 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 email@example.com.
