5th Avenue Theatre Company announces auditions for White Christmas on Sunday, July 25 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for principle characters only in the Jean Carlo Stephenson Auditorium in City Hall.
Auditions for ensemble roles and children’s pre-show are scheduled for Sunday, August 15 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will also be in the Jean Carlo Stephenson Auditorium.
Individuals auditioning for the adult principle roles are required to sing and dance and will be reading scenes selected by the director.
The characters being cast are:
Bob Wallace: A slightly formal businessman-type in his 20s-30s.
Phil Davis: A fun-loving, energetic guy in his 20s-30s.
Betty Haynes: A young, sophisticated lady in her 20s-30s.
Judy Haynes: An outgoing, fun-loving, and energetic girl in her 20s-30s.
General Henry Waverly: A gruff but gentle, no-nonsense type of man in his 40s-60s.
Martha Watson: A funny, motherly lady who runs the inn for the general. A pleasant lady in her 40s-60s.
The story of White Christmas begins on the Western Front in World War II and then travels to New York and continues in the state of Vermont where Bob and Phil try to save the inn owned by General Waverly by having a show in the barn of the inn. Communications get skewed and the fun ensues. This fun, romantic comedy introduced great songs like White Christmas, Sisters, I Love a Piano, Snow and The Best Things Happen While You’re Dancing.
White Christmas runs December 3-5 and 10-12 with a school performance on December 9. Eddie Harbert will serve as director for the show with Mike Campbell as musical director and Kerri Easter-Stambaugh as choreographer. For more information about auditions, call 304-412-8738.
