Auditions - "Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge"

Arena Dinner Theatre presents Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge by Christopher Durang

Director Lindsay Hoops is looking for a cast of 5 women and 8 men (3 children). Please email Lindsay
directly at [email protected] if you’d like a PDF copy of the script to read ahead of time.

Characters include:
The Ghost of Christmas Past, Present & Future – Female, Black, age 30-50yrs: gentle narrator type
that can turn irritable on a dime. Lots of attitude. Strong singing skills.
Ebenezer Scrooge – Male, age 30-40yrs: grouchy, sarcastic, strong comedic timing.
Mrs. Bob Cratchit – Female, age 30-40yrs: full of rage, strong comedic timing, English accent preferred.
Bob Cratchit – Male, age 30-40yrs: pathetically jolly – like a Buddy the Elf type, English accent preferred.
*Tiny Tim, Fezziwig Child 1 – Male, age 8-18yrs: boyish, naive, goody-goody.
Hedwig, Fezziwig Child 2, Monica (the angel), the Nice Mrs. Cratchit – Female, age 18-45yrs,
emotionally flexible, able to play both child-like and adult, English accent preferred.
Mr. Fezziwig, The Beadle, Gentleman Collecting for Christmas 1 – Male, age 20-45yrs: emotionally
flexible.
Mrs. Fezziwig, Little Nell Cratchit, The Beadle’s Wife – Female, age 20-45yrs: emotionally flexible,
able to play both child-like and adult.
*Young Jacob Marley, Cratchit Child 1, Zuzu Bailey – Female or Male, age 8-14yrs.
*Young Ebenezer, Cratchit Child 2 – Female or Male, age 8-14yrs.
George Bailey, Gentleman Collecting for Christmas 2, Edvar, Serena the Maid – Male, age 18-45yrs,
emotionally flexible, able to play both child-like and adult, English accent preferred. Would love a solid
Jimmy Stewart impression for the George Bailey character but not required.
Jacob Marley’s Ghost, Clarence, Bartender 1 – Male, age 40yrs+.

Auditions will be on October 2 and October 3 at 7 pm at Arena Dinner Theatre. Please have a schedule
of all rehearsal conflicts at auditions and be prepared to read scenes from the script.

Rehearsals will begin the week of October 10 and will typically be Monday-Friday 7 pm-10 pm. Note: We will start this early in October because some weeks we will only rehearse Monday-Thursday due to Into the Breeches performances. Some Sunday rehearsals might be called. Every effort will be made to schedule rehearsal around actor’s conflicts.
Performances are scheduled Dec 1 and 8 at 7:30 pm, Dec. 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, and 17 at 8 pm, and Dec 11 and 18 at 2 pm
