Saturday, 27 September
Open auditions for young people’s roles in
Scrooge – The Musical
– see below for further details.
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

Musical Director: Matt Flint
Production dates: 3–13 December 2014 (main house)
Rehearsals commence early October
Auditions for younger roles only: Saturday, 27 September

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+):
Ebby (Scrooge as a child)
Jenny (his sister)
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.
