Audition for a Holiday Classic
October 1 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Marion Art Center (the MAC) Theater announces open auditions for the upcoming production of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol, adapted for radio from Charles Dickens’ novella by Anthony Palermo, directed by Rick Sherburne.
Auditions will be held in the MAC’s Anne Braitmayer Webb Theater on Saturday, October 1, 12:00-2:00 pm and Sunday, October 2, 2:00-4:00 pm, with callbacks on Monday, October 3 at 7:00 pm if necessary. The MAC is located at 80 Pleasant Street in Marion. Performance dates are scheduled December 2, 3, 9, 10, 11, 2022. Some dates are subject to change. Evening shows begin at 7:30 pm while Sunday matinees begin at 2:00 pm. Only fully vaccinated actors will be considered for roles.
Auditions will consist of the reading of scenes from the show for the many familiar characters: Scrooge, the Cratchits, Jacob Marley and the other spirits of Christmas and numerous supporting roles. While this is written as a radio play, this production will focus on its storytelling nature, focusing on the quality of the performances as heard through the voice. As such, individual cast members may play multiple parts, and male and female roles may not be gender-bound. In short, those who wish to audition should come prepared to try out for whatever part appeals to them.
