UPCOMING AUDITIONS ANNOUNCED!

Auditions for The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of "A Christmas Carol" are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday evenings, September 11 and 12 at 7:00, with possible callbacks scheduled for Wednesday evening, September 13.

They will take place at Theatre Depot, 248 W. Depot Street (former Howard's Business Forms location behind the Post Office).

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, so no advance preparation is required.

THE STORY 

 In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of A Christmas Carol. They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren’t), engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and-- a real Farndale first -- wrap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs. Loosely based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

THE CHARACTERS

Mrs. Reece (Female, 50s) – elegant and enterprising and plays Tiny Tim, Fred's wife, a gentleman, Mrs. Dilber, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.

Thelma (Female, 40s) – a quick tempered prima donna and plays Ebenezer Scrooge.

Gordon (Male, any age) – the long-suffering stage manager who is frozen faced and monotonous when acting. He plays Mrs. Cratchit, Jacob Marley, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and Mr. Fezziwig.  He must be physically fit.

Felicity (Female, 20s) – a nervous, well-meaning, but incompetent actress who plays the Ghost of Christmas Present, Fred, Little Fan, and Old Joe. She must be comfortable with being lifted.

Mercedes (Female, 30s-60s) – “Phlegmatic yet dogged" and plays Bob Cratchit, Belle, and a boy. The ability to perform simple stunts is a must.
