In the NewsSyracuse Stage to Hold Youth Auditions for "A Christmas Carol"
Syracuse Stage will be holding youth auditions for boys and girls ages 6-13 for eight roles in the 2013 holiday show A Christmas Carol. Youth auditions will take place on Wed., May 29 and Thurs., May 30 from 3:00-6:00 pm each day. To schedule an audition, please contact Chris Botek at 315-443-4008.
Those wishing to audition should prepare a short (1 minute) monologue or speech. All actors must try a British accent. Actors may be asked to sing a portion of a traditional Christmas carol. Actors should appear to be the ages of the characters as described below. Children from diverse cultural backgrounds are encouraged to audition, and older actors who look younger are encouraged to audition.
Those cast must be available for all rehearsals (Oct. 22 - Nov. 22) and performances (Nov. 23 - Dec. 29), and must be age 13 or under through Dec. 29, 2013.
Adapted by acclaimed playwright Romulus Linney, this new-to-Syracuse version of A Christmas Carol stays close to Dickens' original story, offering a magical journey through Christmas past, present, and future in a show that embodies the peace, goodwill and joy of the holiday season. A Christmas Carol will be a co-production with Syracuse University's Department of Drama.
