Blending seven original songs with traditional Christmas carols, this show is full of holiday spirit! All your favorite fairytale characters take on new roles to retell this adaptation of A Christmas Carol that's surprisingly true to the original, yet unlike you've ever seen it before! You'll never know who will show up next when the Big Bad Wolf as Ebenezer Scrooge meets the ghost of his old business partner Jacob Midas (Marley), who could turn anything to gold. Midas warns Big Bad that he'll be visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future (played by a Fairy Godmother, Old King Cole and the Queen of Hearts respectively). The ghosts make Scrooge realize what a scoundrel he's been to the Charming (or Crachit) family - including Prince Philip, Cinderella and their kids, Hansel, Gretel and Tabitha, their Little Match Girl - and help him remember what the Christmas spirit is all about.

Audition Information

Auditions for The Fairy Tale Christmas Carol, the Musical are Sunday, Oct. 11 from 3-6pm and Monday from 6:30-9 at the Pearl Theater. The show has many featured roles with some that will be doubled, plus featured dancers and singers.

We are seeking mostly teens and adults to fill roles, with some roles for younger children ages 10-12 as well. Auditions will consist of cold reading from the script, a short song selection, and choreographed movement. Please come dressed to move and prepare a verse and chorus of an upbeat song (Broadway show tune, preferred) that showcases your voice. You may bring an instrumental CD or sheet music. Please no a capella singing. Also, bring a headshot and resume to the auditions as well as a list of scheduling conflicts. For script and song samples, Click Here.
