Audition for Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

Dear Hedgerow friends,

Please join us for our Annual A Christmas Carol Auditions, Sunday, October 8th, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. at Hedgerow Theatre, 64 Rose Valley Road, Rose Valley, PA 19063.

This year we are featuring a special choir of all ages to sing carols during the performance.  We are also auditioning for the named roles of Past, Fan and/or the Cratchit children: Peter, Martha, Belinda, Tiny Tim & the two little Cratchits (male or female).  

All who audition please be prepared to sing a Christmas carol of your choice (a Cappella) and have a funny joke or story to tell. If you auditioning for The Ghost of Christmas Past please see the side below for auditioning.

Because planning for the busy holiday season is challenging, and because conflicts weigh heavily in all casting decisions, the conflict form at the link below must be completely filled out before any audition.

 

CLICK HERE TO FILL OUT YOUR AUDITION FORMS

 

To save time on audition day, please fill the forms out online in advance.   Otherwise, you may have to wait until forms are filled out.

If auditioning with multiple family members with the SAME conflicts, fill out the form and email Ariel Baker, abaker@hedgerowtheatre.org, with the names of your participating family members. If you have family members with different conflicts, you will need to fill out separate forms.

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you and enjoying another wonderful year of Christmas Carol. Thank you for being a part of this special tradition!

Sincerely,

 

The Hedgerow Company
