AUDITION PROCESS
Auditions will be in person at the theatre with only one person auditioning at a time in the auditorium. Bring a prepared monologue (no more than two minutes). The monologue does NOT have to be memorized – it is your chance to show your strengths. There will also be some cold readings to show the range you have as an actor as well. Bring a list of conflicts for all of November into mid December.

Please sign up for a time slot and five minutes before your audition time go into the basement of the theatre to wait to be called for your audition.

REHEARSALS
Rehearsals will start in early November and will be light as most of the play you are able to use the script during performances. While there is singing in the show, this is minor and we will ask you about your singing ability but this is not a major consideration in casting.

CHARACTERS
(actors from 18 and above will be considered for all characters – rough ages are given, but there is flexibility with age – it is more about the age ranges you will be playing during the radio play):

  • FREDDIE FILMORE (actor plays age: 40’s-70+, any ethnicity) voices multiple characters including Ebenezer Scrooge and Santa Claus. Voices multiple characters including Marley and the Ghost of Christmas Present.
