FOR 2014 PRODUCTION OF A CHRISTMAS CAROL
The Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park will hold auditions on Saturday, June 7, for children interested in performing in the 2014 production of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL,presented by U.S. Bank. The show, an annual Tristate holiday tradition, celebrates its 24th year this season with performances running Nov. 26 through Dec. 28, 2014.
Nine area children will be cast to fill speaking and non-speaking parts in the production. Roles are available for boys and girls 8 to 13 years old. Additionally, the part of Tiny Tim requires a boy 6 to 8 years of age. Those cast in previous productions of A CHRISTMAS CAROL will need to audition again to be considered for this year’s show. To be eligible, children must not turn 14 beforeDec. 28, 2014.
“Working with the children is what keeps me returning to this production year after year,” says Michael Evan Haney, who will direct A CHRISTMAS CAROL for his 22nd season. “It is a joy, year after year, to watch them gain confidence in rehearsal and achieve a wonderful fearlessness on the stage.”
Children should submit a resume of any experience to the Playhouse, along with a photograph (a good quality school or family photo is acceptable). The resume and photo must be submitted again even if they have been sent in the past. The resume must include exact birth date and height, as well as an email address and telephone number. At the audition, children will be asked to share a one-minute monologue, story or poem with an English accent.
Interested children must be available for all rehearsals, most of which are scheduled around school hours. Rehearsals for A CHRISTMAS CAROL begin in
mid-November. Children must also be available for all performances of the show, which are scheduled Tuesdays through Sundays and include some weekday student
and public matinees.
