Young Actors Needed for Marshall's "A Christmas Carol"

   Marshall's Department of Theatre is looking for some talented young actors for its traditional Christmas production.

   Auditions will be held for children ages 6 - 12 for Marshall University's upcoming production of A Christmas Carol on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 7 to 8 p.m. on the stage of the Joan C. Edwards Playhouse. (Enter through the door at the top of the ramp on the 6th Avenue side of the building and follow the signs to the playhouse stage.) 

   Children should prepare one Christmas song, preferably something traditional, and will be asked to speak lines from the script which will be provided. Children may be asked to attempt to speak the lines with a British accent.

   Rehearsals begin the week of Oct. 10 and are typically Monday through Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. and some Saturday afternoons. 

   Children will be called to minimal evening rehearsals until the week of Nov. 7, after which time they must be available every evening. 

   The production runs from Nov. 16 - 19, 2016, at 7:30 p.m., with matinee performances on Saturday Nov. 19 at 2 p.m. and on Friday, Nov. 18 at 9:30 a.m. 

   Children must be available for all performances. 

   Please email the director, Nicole Perrone, with any questions at perronen@marshall.edu.
