BREAKDOWN
The Playhouse's version of A Christmas Carol combines faithful storytelling with spellbinding stage magic to bring to life its familiar story of a sinner given one last chance at redemption by four persuasive ghosts. Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes a miraculous Christmas Eve transformation as he views with new eyes his past, present and the possibilities of the future. As he witnesses all those who have improved his life — his first love Belle, his kindhearted employer Fezziwig, his nephew Fred and his heartily abused clerk Bob Cratchit — he realizes that it's never too late to change his miserly ways. A Christmas Carol's heartwarming message, hundreds of costumes and thrilling special effects help to make the show one of the Playhouse's most popular productions each year.
Actors of all ethnicities encouraged to submit
SEEKING:

YOUNG & MATURE SCROOGE / GHOST OF CHRISTMAS FUTURE (Male, mid-late 20s) Open ethnicity. Young Scrooge is a teenage apprentice playing with friends and falling in love with Belle. Later, he is seduced by the lure of money and financial security and must leave her behind. Seeking a classically trained actor, with a strong voice, stage presence and emotional range. Doubles as Christmas Future; who has a scary stillness to him. Ability to manipulate a large costume necessary.

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST / MRS. PEAKE (Female, mid 20s-early 40s) Seeking an actor of color. Christmas Past is a spritely and wise spirit who takes Scrooge on a tour of his past life and choices. Seeking a classically trained actor with a strong voice and strong movement background. Doubles are Mrs. Peake, an older housekeeper, so actors must have the ability to age-up credibly at the end of play.
FRED / AS CAST (Male, 30s) Open ethnicity. Fred is Scrooge's nephew. He is eternally cheery and optimistic. He embraces and embodies the generous spirit of the holidays. Seeking a classically trained actor with a strong voice and great charisma onstage. As cast covers participation in the ensemble throughout the play.
