Theatre in the Grove will be holding auditions for THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER, by Barbara Robinson, at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, October 11 and Monday, October 12, at the theatre. Auditions are open to adults and children ages 6-13.
Rehearsals begin October 19 and the production runs December 4-20. Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday Matinees. Rehearsals will be Monday-Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Callbacks will be held at the discretion of the director.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Children are asked to prepare an excerpt from a Christmas carol or other simple song (Happy Birthday, Alphabet Song, etc). Please arrive on time and be prepared to stay the entire time. Please bring a current photograph (headshot, school photo, etc.) Resumes are welcome, but not necessary. Please bring a list of all conflicts during the rehearsal period. There can be no conflicts for performances.
All roles are volunteer.
We are also seeking a volunteer piano accompanist for the production. The accompanist may double as a character.
