The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem Announces Auditions for An Old Salem Christmas Carol
The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem will hold auditions for An Old Salem Christmas Carol on Monday, October 1 and Tuesday, October 2 at the Winston-Salem Journal Building, 418 N. Marshall Street. Auditions will begin at 5:30 pm for actors 6-15 and at 7 pm for actors 16+. No appointment is necessary, and everyone is welcome to audition.
A passing stranger is welcomed into Salem Tavern by a cheerful group celebrating Christmas Eve. The story he tells them is magical, and yet vaguely familiar… It’s 1887, and hard times have fallen on the people of Winston and nearby Salem. Tobacco rolling machines are replacing manual jobs, and bad rains have hurt farms. Making things worse is Ebeneezer Scrooge, a lender who’s foreclosing on mortgages and ruining the holidays for everyone. In the heart of Old Salem, can three spirits teach him the true meaning of Christmas? Adapted by Stephen P. Scott and based on the classic tale by Charles Dickens, this heartwarming world premiere adaptation was written exclusively for The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem.
Lane Fields will direct An Old Salem Christmas Carol. There are roles available for men, women and children, ages 6+. Auditions will consist of reading from sides in different groupings. Actors are encouraged to bring their calendars to the audition, so they can advise of any conflicts with the rehearsal schedule.
Performance dates for An Old Salem Christmas Carol are December 7-9, 13-16 & 20-22. Two daytime matinees for schools will be held at 9:30 am and 11:30 am on Tuesday, December 11. All performances will be held at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA).
