M&D Playhouse is pleased to announce auditions for their production of A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas, by Charles Dickens, adapted for the stage by Michael Wilson
Auditions will take place at M&D Playhouse, 2760 White Mountain Highway, North Conway, NH on Sunday, September 24 and Monday, September 25 at 6:30pm. Performers of all ages and genders are encouraged to try out for this production. No experience required – just enthusiasm! This is an open call and will consist of cold readings from the script.
This theatrical and spirited version puts the phantasmagoric qualities of Charles Dickens’ classic tale center stage. A swirling, dancing chorus of ghosts that weave through this uplifting holiday story of redemption, magic, and hope. This version has been performed for almost a million people over the years and the New York Times heralds it as “…rousing and crowd pleasing”. The Hartford Courant says “the adaptation of Dickens’ classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge distills the essence of the holiday spirit in a series of sights, sounds and splendors that all but guarantee audiences leave bursting with a feeling of Christmas”.
M&D Playhouse presents a variation of A Christmas Carol each holiday season, from classic to contemporary. While the production may feature a twist, or two, each remains true to the essence of the story.
If you have any questions, or require additional information, feel free to email the director Siobhan Bradley Stevens at email@example.com. Performance dates are Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, November 30 – December 17. For available roles please visit MDPlayhouse.com/Auditions.
