Cast Breakdown:

Our cast is broken up into four main categories:

School House Kids 

School House Kids range from ages 6–11 and appear in several scenes throughout the production but mainly the School House scene in Act 1. School House kids will learn an intermediate dance, will need to sing along and be expressive and vibrant. 

Dancing Towns People (Adult Chorus) 

The Dancing TownsPeople range from ages 14–55+ and appear in several scenes throughout the show mainly around three dances. The Dancing TownsPeople have some of the most fun in the show and create a special bond through rehearsals. We are looking for fun, expressive, high energy people who have a sense of rhythm and can learn choreography. No professional dance training is required. 

Lead Roles 

Lead roles range from ages 6–60+ and require both singing and acting abilities. They will work alongside our Director, Acting Coaches and Music Director to learn the character they are cast as and bring them to life. At auditions you do not need to know which role you would like to audition for. All roles will require memorizing and delivering lines and roles that require singing are marked with an asterisk. These roles include:

  • Bob Cratchit* and Sarah Cratchit* 
  • Tiny Tim* (6–10)
  • Cratchit Family* (four children) 
  • Fred
  • Solicitors #1 and #2  
  • Jacob Marely 
  • Angel #1*, Angel #2*, Angel #3

  • Adult Ebenezer* and Belle (21+)

Character People 

Character people range in ages and help bring life to Scrooge in costume and with specific props. There are no lines, dancing or singing required, but the ability to bring life and vibrancy to the show.

How to Prepare for Auditions:

School House Kids 

  • Parents, please arrive at auditions with your children and remain on campus throughout the duration of auditions. Drop offs are not allowed. 
  • Sign in, fill out our cast sheet, receive an audition number to be worn throughout the day and have your picture taken. 
  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you can move around in. 
  • After our introduction we will dismiss School House Kids to another room with their choreographer who will teach them a simple 1 minute song. After learning the song for approximately 1 hour they will then perform that dance for a small casting team. 
  • After you have completed your audition you will be dismissed and hear from us within one week.

Dancing Towns People (Adult Chorus)

  • After our introduction, we will dismiss those auditions for Dancing TownsPeople to another room with their choreographer who will teach them a 1–2 minute song. After learning the song for approximately 1 hour, they will then perform that dance for a small casting team. 
  • After you have completed your audition, you will be dismissed and you will hear from us within one week. If you also would like to audition for a Lead Role, please return to the check-in desk and let them know.

Lead Roles 

  • Sign in, fill out our cast sheet, receive an audition number to be worn throughout the day and have your picture taken. 
  • After our introduction, we will dismiss everyone to the lobby and will call people in one at a time for their audition. You do not need to know what role you would like to audition for in order to audition for Scrooge. If you have not seen the show, that is completely acceptable and you will not be at a disadvantage. Below we have audition scripts and songs for you to prepare for your audition. There are multiple scripts and songs available for you to prepare. Please pick one script and one song to sing. We will not be providing audition material for all roles, but will use the content below to cast every role in Scrooge. You may be asked to read lines for a part you did not prepare for. This is called a cold read. We are not looking for perfection, but looking to see how you sound and bring certain lines to life.
  • You may be asked to attend a callback on Monday September 26th at 6:30pm. If you are auditioning for a Lead Role please reserve this date.

Character People

  • Sign in, fill out our cast sheet, receive an audition number to be worn throughout the day and have your picture taken. 
  • After our introduction, we will dismiss everyone to the lobby and will call people in one at a time for their audition.
