BREAKDOWN

All Roles are Available: All actors should joy in Dickens' language, have facility with British dialects, and be excited for a physically-driven rehearsal process. Everyone except Scrooge narrates and is a member of the company; they need to be able to create multiple distinct characters through body and voice. Ensemble actors must be comfortable singing and holding harmony. Puppetry experience and ability to play strolling instruments (fiddle, accordion, etc.) are a plus!
