Auditions for A Christmas Carol
special Monday auditions for A Christmas Carol Extended
Quick As A Wink Theatre Society is holding open auditions for their upcoming production of A Christmas Carol (Music by Alan Menkin, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Book by Mike Ockrent and Lynn Ahrens. Based on the story by Charles Dickens)
Auditions for The Drowsy Chaperone are now closed, but we are still looking for males aged 16 and older with strong dance abilities. Anyone interested should contact the director, Toven MacLean, at firstname.lastname@example.org
A Christmas Carol, directed by Mark Wainman with music direction by Katrina Salmon, will require a large cast with a large ensemble of all ages. Anyone who wishes to participate in this musical will be given a role.
No experience necessary. Quick As A Wink prides itself on taking actors of all skill levels, from first timers to experienced actors, and teaching skills required to perform for a live audience. Our mission includes the education of community members in theatre and performing arts!
When: Auditions will be held the following time:
Monday, July 24th at 6:30pm
Where: Fountain Performing Arts Centre at King's-Edgehill School in Windsor, NS
What is Expected: Please plan to attend the entire audition time on your evening of choice. The first part of the audition will be a group gathering. The group will meet the director, music director, and vocal coach. We will sing together, and then meet briefly with the music director to determine singing ranges. There will be a short dancing combination taught to get an idea of dancing skill.
If you are interested in the ensemble only, you will be free to leave after the first hour. Those interested in a speaking and/or singing role will be asked to sing individually on the stage. Please do not prepare a song from A Christmas Carol. Your song should last no longer than 30-45 seconds. Monologue not required, but there will be cold readings available.
