Meadow Brook Theatre announces auditions for children for roles in their ‘15 production of A Christmas Carol. Auditions will be held at the theatre in Wilson Hall on the campus of Oakland University on Saturday morning, September 12. School-aged children who will not have reached their 14th birthday before October 20 (1st day of rehearsal) may audition.
Children interested in auditioning should arrive at the lobby of the theatre starting at 9 am to sign in. They will be reading from the script in groups onstage. No prepared pieces, singing or dancing required at this audition. While it is not necessary, bring a copy of your resume if you have one. Please bring a photo that you do not need returned. It need not be a professional headshot; a school picture is fine.
Rehearsals for A Christmas Carol will be after school and on weekends with Monday as a day off. Performances with many school day matinees begin November 12 and end December 24. Each child’s role will be double-cast with each actor scheduled for approximately half of the 55 performances. Children in the cast will be paid a small fee.
For more information, you may call 248-370-3308.
