About the roles

We are looking for 3 boys and 3 girls to play a variety of roles, including:

  • Tiny Tim
  • Scrooge as a child
  • Peter Cratchit
  • Martha Cratchit
  • Belinda Cratchit
  • Fan

All young actors will be part of the ensemble and appear in many scenes as many characters throughout the play.

We are searching for young actors between the ages of 7-13, with a maximum height of 5’.

Actors must be able to sing, and dancing ability is an asset.

Please submit a resume and picture for consideration by email only to Cindi Ryde at cryde [at] grandtheatre [dot] com. Resumes must be received by June 25, 2018 and should include:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Height
  • Date of birth
  • Grade and school
  • Parent(s) name and contact information (phone and email)
  • Any training in acting, singing, dance, etc; please list any productions you may have been involved in.

Please note that because of time restrictions, interest will not guarantee an audition.  Cindi will be in contact by June 29 to schedule auditions with successful candidates.

Because of the time and commitment that the production would require, it is important that the participants’ academic standing is such that school can be missed.  It is vital that the young actors have the support of family and school.

Should you secure an audition, please be prepared to sing a song (an accompanist will be present, so bring sheet music in the correct key), and recite/present a short poem, monologue, or short story that has been memorized. *Please note that a British accent will be required both for the play and for the auditions.
