Cast­ing call for A Christ­mas Carol

The Prince George Citizen - - Local -

A few flakes of un­sea­sonal snow may have been a har­bin­ger on Wed­nes­day. It was the day Judy Rus­sell an­nounced her pro­duc­tion for the Christ­mas sea­son and called on lo­cal ac­tors to dig down deep and of­fer a far­thing of tal­ent for the poor au­di­ences who would oth­er­wise go with­out.

The play is a fa­mil­iar one – A Christ­mas Carol. The Dick­ens clas­sic has been done by Rus­sell more than once, on years that al­ter­nate from her on­go­ing bi­en­nial show The Nutcracker.

Since this was an off-year for the bal­let, it was time for an­other ti­tle and Rus­sell went back to the old favourite.

The tale of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and his wild night of ghostly haunt­ings is in need of a cast. Au­di­tion dates are Satur­day and Sun­day for those want­ing to try out. There are needs for chil­dren, adults, ac­tors, singers, and also vol­un­teer stage crew. Any­one aged eight and older is in­vited for the try­outs (past stage ex­pe­ri­ence rec­om­mended).

The show will run Dec. 13-22 at the Prince Ge­orge Play­house.

The au­di­tions will be held at Rus­sell’s En­chaine­ment Dance Cen­tre at 3540 Opie Cres. For times and au­di­tion de­tails, call 250-563-2902 or email judy­dance@shaw­ca­ble.com.
