The Acrosstown Repertory Theatre is pleased to announce open auditions for its November 28-December 21 production of “Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol” by Tom Mula, directed by Carolyne Salt.
Back for its second year, Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol tells the real story behind Dickens’ A Christmas Carol– Marley’s heroic behind-the-scenes efforts to save old Scrooge’s soul, while saving his own in theprocess. Marley is not alone, however; he is aided by the Bogle, an irreverent little sprite with an agenda all his own. In this fast-paced, hilarious and deeply-moving soon-to-be Christmas classic, four actors bring dozens of Dickens’s characters to life and take the audience on a fantastic journey certain to put everyone in the Christmas spirit.
Auditions will be held at the theater (619 South Main Street, in the Baird Center) on Sunday, September 21 & Monday, September 22 at 7pm.
This is a true ensemble show– four people play all of the roles and narrate as they go. No prepared monologues are required, cold readings from the script will be provided. There may be some movement work, so please wear comfortable clothing and footwear.
The Acrosstown is entirely volunteer-run and -operated, and all levels of experience are welcomed. Backstage help is needed, too– please phone the theater at 352-234-6278 (352-BE IN ART) if you would like to get involved!
If cast you will be compensated by the roar of applause and the joy of being part of the Acrosstown family
