AUDITIONS for A CHRISTMAS CAROL
We are pleased to announce that this December, we will be presenting a very special adaptation of A CHRISTMAS CAROL that aligns with our commitments to quality theatre and community safety.
This is a one-act, one-hour, solo stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol enacted by Dickens himself, and based on a condensed version of the novel that he used while on the second of his historic reading tours of the United States.
Rehearsals: November 2-December 13
Performances: December 4-13
Auditions: October 27 & 28 by appointment only.
Please review the info, sign up for a slot, AND complete an audition registration.
THE RLT PROCESS
Casting Committees: Each of our productions has its own team. Each team has its own casting committee, a group of people donating their time and talent to get the best cast possible for each show. According to the RLT by-laws, the Director and Producer for each show must sit on the casting committee. Beyond that, no single person can sit on two casting committees in the same season, so each time you audition you are seeing new people!
Family Members at Auditions: Since we are a family theatre, we often have family members auditioning and we love that. When someone on the casting committee has a family member auditioning, the casting committee member leaves the casting table to allow the rest of the casting committee to determine if the family member is a good fit for a role in the production.
Open Auditions versus Closed Auditions: Different directors make different choices for their audition processes. All RLT auditions are "open call," that means anyone can come and audition. You can register ahead or simply walk in the day of, and you are welcome! We love having new people and new talent walk across the stage! So all of our auditions are "open" in that way. Sometimes a director wants to see one person at a time, without an audience. If that is the case, they will have "closed" auditions where the theatre is kept quiet and one person is allowed to enter at a time. Other times directors will choose to have "open" auditions where everyone can watch each other audition and family members are allowed to stay as well. Try to trust the director and be willing to give your best audition regardless of their style.
