A Christmas Carol Auditions

The Stage Company will hold auditions for the second production of its thirty-eighth season, A Christmas Carol, by Patrick Barlow, on Monday, October 14th and Tuesday October 15th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. in the East Theater of the Varsity Center.

A retelling of Charles Dickens’ holiday classic. This thrilling adaptation uses only five actors to bring some of Dickens’ most beloved characters to life. From Scrooge and Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Fezziwig, Barlow’s A Christmas Carol uses nothing more than some simple props, fresh physicality, and the power of imagination to convey this timeless story of redemption. Witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation from a stingy miser to a man who generously celebrates the spirit of the season all year long, in this highly theatrical adaptation.

We are looking to cast 5 actors (non-specific genders/ages. There will be cold readings from the script provided. Actors are welcome to come with a prepared monologue if they desire, but it is not required.
Those auditioning should bring a complete list of any potential conflicts they may have that would prevent them from attending rehearsals
