The Three Ships Collective, with the support of Soup Can Theatre, is holding auditions for their upcoming production of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL.
This will be a site-specific adaptation running at Toronto’s Campbell House Museum, adapted by Justin Haigh and directed by Sarah Thorpe. In this intimate Victorian setting, audiences will follow Scrooge throughout Campbell House on his ghostly journey of redemption on Christmas Eve.
We are actively interested in seeing artists from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, all gender identities and expressions, all abilities, and all body types. We will accept submissions from artists ages 18 and up. Please note that the role of Ebenezer Scrooge has already been cast. All actors will be playing multiple roles. Ability to do a British accent (RP, Cockney) is an asset. We are also looking for actors that can play the violin or fiddle – please note this in your submission.
ROLES TO BE CAST (as the script is still being adapted, please note that these roles are subject to change): Jacob Marley / Ghost of Christmas Past / Ghost of Christmas Present / Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come / Bob Cratchit / Fred / Fezziwig / Young Scrooge / Fan / Belle / Mrs. Cratchit / Martha Cratchit / Peter Cratchit / Old Joe / Mrs. Dilber / Ensemble Roles
