ABOUT THESE AUDITIONS

The auditions for Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!) will be conducted as an open call, which means that you do NOT have to make an advance appointment.

Instead, pick one of the two nights to audition. Please be sure to arrive at the Playhouse and sign in no later than 8 p.m.

Callbacks (if needed) will be held Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014, at 7 p.m.

CASTING REQUIREMENTS

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!) uses an ensemble cast, and will be cast with three or four actors (age range: 20s to 50s).

Director's Note: "I am looking for 3 or 4 actors, men or women or a combination thereof. I’m specifically looking for actors with a faculty for physical comedy and taking risks. Actors do need to sing one song in the play. You need not be a musical theater level singer, but must be willing to sing!"

WHAT TO PREPARE FOR THESE AUDITIONS

Please prepare a contemporary comedic one-minute monologue. You may be asked to stay and read a brief scene from the script.

Copies of the full script are available at the Weathervane box office. To peruse the script, please stop in during regular Box Office hours only (Mondays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.). The script may NOT be taken from the theater.

Please bring your calendar with you to auditions — you will be asked to list your conflicts.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Instead of performing Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told — plus Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture, and every carol ever sung. A madcap romp through the holiday season!

ABOUT THE REHEARSALS

Rehearsals begin Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014. Rehearsals are tentatively set for 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 5 to p.m. on Sundays. This schedule may be altered if necessary.

MUST dates for those cast in the show: Saturday, Nov. 29 and Sunday, Nov. 30 (for technical rehearsals); and Dec. 1, 2 and 3 (for dress rehearsals).

ABOUT THE SHOW'S PERFORMANCES

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!) will play for 11 performances on Weathervane's Founders Theater stage between Dec. 4 and 20, 2014.

Because the show will run in rotation with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the production does NOT follow the usual Thursday-through-Sunday performance schedule.

Saturday, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m.
