News: Auditions

Updated: 20 September 2014

Saturday, 27 September

2.30pm

Open auditions for young people’s roles in Scrooge – The Musical – see below for further details.


Casting policy

It has been agreed by the Board, on the recommendation of the Artistic Management, that the Loft Theatre Company will continue its policy of holding auditions for all active members plus non-members (provided they agree to join as members before commencement of rehearsal, if cast).

Directors are free to contact whomsoever they wish in advance of an audition to invite them to read alongside others for a specific role, but any pre-casting must be done openly and must be approved by the Artistic Management in advance.

All casting considerations will be discussed between directors and members of the Artistic Management. Casting decisions will be notified to all those who attended the audition(s), and cast lists will be posted on the website.


Scrooge – the Musical
Book, music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse
based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

Director: Tim Willis
Musical Director: Matt Flint
Production dates: 3–13 December 2014 (main house)
Rehearsals commence early October

Auditions for younger roles only: Saturday, 27 September
at 2.30pm at the theatre

Like the film of the same name, which starred Albert Finney, Edith Evans, Alec Guinness and Kenneth More, the musical closely follows the plot of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, in which the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night, after being visited by the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

Characters include (6 x aged 10+):

  • Tiny Tim
  • Kathy Cratchit
  • Ebby (Scrooge as a child)
  • Jenny (his sister)
  • Peter Cratchit
  • Martha Cratchit

Young actors will also be required to play other roles.

The audition process will consist of a group song and acting workshop, which will be followed by individual singing* slots and sight reading. Please be prepared to stay until 5pm if required.

* Please prepare a song of your choice, and please ensure you bring sheet music with you.

Please contact Tim Willis on 07818 032752 or email TimWillis@loft-theatre.co.uk for further details.
