CASTING CHILDREN FOR THIS 2018 - 2019 SEASON
We are looking for children of all ethnicities to audition for roles A Civil War Christmas. If cast rehearsals begin October 16th, Opening Night is November 30th and Closing performance is on December 9th.
All rehearsals will take place at UConn from 6:30pm – 10:30pm during the week and from 10am – 6pm on Saturdays. Your child will most likely not be called for the full time or every night. We try to limit the time they need to work as best as possible. You will be responsible for rides to and from. A responsible student in the cast will be assigned as their Guardian during rehearsals and shows. Your child will have to miss 1 or 2 days of school for student matinee performances.
Children must prepare a monologue, poem or speech that is no more than 1 minute long and to sing several bars of a song, a cappella (without piano accompaniment). If you’d prefer, the song can be a Christmas Carol (such as God Rest Ye Gentleman, What Child is This, Oh Christmas Tree).
Please film and submit a video to by September 28th. This video should include the material listed above (introduction of name and age, song and monologue).
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
