Open Auditions for Scrooge the Musical
October 10 @ 7:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until October 11th, 2021
Mankato Playhouse presents Scrooge the Musical, Directed by David Holmes. The Vocal Direction is yet TBD. Auditions will be October 10th and October 11th with callbacks (if needed) on October 13th.
Auditions begin at 7 p.m. each night (please arrive 10 – 15 min early) Live performances will be on Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday matinees December 3 – December 19, 2021.
All roles are available during auditions. Please bring sheet music for a song you have already learned. Mankato Playhouse will provide a pianist at auditions to accompany you. Do not use a song from the show. Do not sing to taped music or sing a cappella.
You do not have to sing an entire song. Sixteen to 32 measures should be sufficient. We only want to get an idea of how well you can carry a tune and follow accompaniment. If you are “called back” we will ask you to sing some more.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present, and Future.
Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.
